Experiencing Interruptions?

Epic selfie!

Internet is full of dump selfies captured in front of the mirror. The time has arrived to change it! This is my why how to cope with that, as it is recently harder and harder to take a really original selfie. Switch the sound on and stand to the end. Enjoy!

Director Biography

In 1985 I was born with very poor sight. First year of my life my parents did not realized something is wrong, but at the age of 16 months it was pretty clear I see almost nothing. When the doctors supposed me to lose my vision at all very soon, it was a shock for them. My dad is an artist and he wanted to lecture me in the arts since the childhood. My mom is a nurse, but her true passion is amateur drama. Maybe, that is why they did not accept doctor's opinion and tried to find a help. And they found! Thanks to God, to a lot of work of professional kindergarten teachers, great support of my parents and a lot of eye-training I see. And I see perfectly! Since the times my vision went good I enjoy every detail, every color and I admire any type of light.

My father and me made use of every opportunity to take some shots outdoor until my 20. Now I am PhD student of Hydrobiology at Charles University in Prague. At the same time I am a professional photographer and work for the Faculty of Science as well as for the Prague Zoo and Bohemian Switzerland National Park.

One part of my work , maybe the most interesting one, consists of magnifying very small organisms to large prints using special microscopes and various microphotography technologies. Hopefully you will enjoy that as I do :-)
