Growing up in Czechoslovakia, I received my first camera at a very early age. Viewing the world through the lens of the camera and creating black and white prints became my first love. Before moving to Canada, I found inspiration and honed my eye on travels to over 50 countries around the globe.
I think of myself as a composer, seeking just the right notes to emerge with subtle grace—revealing, by degrees, a highly personal vision of the world. From grand landscapes to the minutia and detail of a single leaf, I try to evoke a sense of connection, community and place with my images and to express my passion for life and landscapes, capturing beauty in unexpected places.
