I´m a 24 year old Czech-Norwegian photographer, based in Oslo. I recently graduated from Bilder Nordic School of Photography. Currently I am studying journalism at the Oslo and Akershus University College of applied Sciences.
As a photographer I try to see people with care and compassion, yet through raw and subjective eyes. I try to make photographs not just of people from the outside but on a deeper level, and in this way to bring another dimension to my pictures.
I´m curious and excited about our lives’ in today´s society, but also a bit melancholic about the present and the past. My pictures reveal a darker side to life, but are contrasted by flashes of humor and hope.
The compositions I make are a bit offset. I like using shapes, reflections and patterns in the environment I´m in, to frame the subject and add texture to the pictures. With this I try to give my pictures a feeling of layering both visually and psychologically.
