ABOUT

 

self portraitOkolní svět je pro mě velká výzva. Linie a tvary, světlo a stín. A barvy se všemi jejich odstíny. A také vzájemné vztahy mezi lidmi a věcmi, které nás obklopují při každodenním životě. Tohle všechno mě nutí přiložit oko k hledáčku kamery a pokusit se zachytit tu nádheru všude kolem. Když nějaký čas nefotografuji, začne mě svrbět ukazováček pravé ruky. Potom se mnou není k vydržení a já zase musím vyrazit ven a alespoň párkrát stisknout spoušť.


The outside world is a big challenge for me. Lines and shapes, light and shadow. And colors with all their shades. And also relationships between people and things surrounding us in everyday life. All this makes me attach eye to the viewfinder and try to capture the beauty everywhere. When I do not shoot for a while, it starts me itch forefinger of my right hand. Then nobody can stand with me and I must go out and at least a couple of times pull the trigger.
