No time to rush. Every city has its own dynamics, frequency, and rhythm. For me, the best way to capture these dynamics is to get rid of the idea that something needs to be documented and rather try to make a given moment present. The photos from this series (mainly taken in Berlin) are an attempt to take this distance-close.
For me, photography is always a way of communicating with the environment and the elements that I see around me. In contrast to poetry, photography is much more physical. The way the photographer moves, the perspective he chooses, the point of view, to me, is the way he communicates. Each photo is at the same time a repeated attempt to capture an image of yourself.

COUNTRY | Czech Republic (Germany)

BIO | I was born in a small town in the Czech Republic. Since 2013 I live in Berlin. I started taking photos in 2012. Originally, I worked with it on a conceptual level and used it as a medium for various art installations. At present, is for my photography much more an instrument that forces me to perceive my everyday life more aesthetically.
