Based in Prague, Czech Republic

My current body of work is concerned with urban people’s body language and its nonverbal expression of inner freedom in everyday situations. My work explore photography and the different ways we store our photos. I keep my photo memories “in fabric” instead of on a mobile phone or on my computer memory. 

The initial impulse for my work was this flashback from my childhood – I was eight years old and we got these packages with embroidered doilies made by my aunt who was in prison at the time. When she got out, I became obsessed with embroidery and asked her to teach me. 

 The things I choose to highlight in my work come to me haphazardly, really. It could be a shallow photo, or an image of random people taken on a crowded street. Sometimes I take photos and when I look at them later, something extraordinary always emerges. No matter what that something is, it always speaks of some inner freedom.
