Who am I?
I was born in Hradec Králové, Czech Republic, and I studied in Prague, Bonn, and Olomouc. I spent some time working for the NGO People in Need as a project co-ordinator and lecturer, later I was a free-lance author of linguistic publications, translator and interpreter.
Since spring 2005 I have been living in Belgium, where I am employed as a translator.
Why do I take pictures?
At first sight, a photo appears to show a little piece of reality or truth, which must be "correctly captured" by the photographer and then "correctly understood" by the viewer.
I enjoy violating this notion: I like to create an image of reality which looks untrue, and an image of truth which looks unreal.
Let everybody find their own way of getting to grips with it.
