The black-and-white documentary portraits of Colleagues were taken in the Central Operating Rooms of the Children's Hospital of the FN Brno between 2018 and 2021, completely spontaneously: at work while working. "Just like in photography, light also plays a very important role in the operating room. When I saw how it slides on their coats, how the glare from the instruments and gloves is reflected in their faces... And those emotions! It was impossible not to photograph it." Jana Stross
