Ever since I was a boy, I have been fascinated by the art of photography. To capture a unique, fleeting moment in time was a concept I readily adopted and am to this day trying to perfect. One of the most powerful images that inspired me to take up photography were those of the D-Day landing, by the famous Robert Capa. His “if your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough” serves me as a motto in my own pursuit of photojournalism.
I was born in 1990 in the former Czechoslovakia, lived in numerous places abroad (USA, UK, Belgium) and continue to travel the world, exploring its many hidden corners. In my profession as a seafarer, I photographed the often forgotten and unknown daily lives of men on board cargo vessels worldwide.
