Karel specialises in studio based nude photography. Originally from Frýdek- Místek in the Czech Republic, he has worked for the last 10 years as a professional photographer in Prague. His intent to study the ‘dynamic extent of the human body’ has pushed his models to the limits.
‘I see the human body as a machine enabling me to consider forms from a different point of view, not looking for sexuality and desire rather perceiving them as a tool of my creativity. I’m fascinated by human movement and the grace of shapes.’
Karel has exhibited throughout Europe in Croatia, Poland, Austria and the Czech Republic. He has won a number of awards, among them the most prestigious being Gold medals in TRIERENBERG SUPER CIRCUIT in the nude category, 2008, 2009 and 2010. In 2012 he received the gold PSA award at the 7th International Salon photography competition in the Ukraine.
