I like to make streams on the Berounka River visible by using very long exposure time. The photographs in the series were prepared in the very center of the small town Dobrichovice (where I live) and the "river curves" or even so called "river nudes" are the results.

I´m a self-taugh photographer originally from the Pilsen region (West of the Czech Republic), now living in Dobrichovice near Prague. I have been involved in photography since childhood, first only with B&W and home-made photos, later with color and infrared pictures. I have been exhibiting publicly since 2013, I have realized 8 solo exhibitions in Czech Republic and my photographs have been shown at several joint international exhibitions (e.g. ACCI Gallery, Berkeley, California, 2020, Glasgow Gallery of Photography 2022 or Prix de la Photographie, Paris 2022).
