What is a photo, and what all can it be?
For Pavel Baňka it is mainly joy and the subject of
The next #czechphotographymasterclass will introduce you the photographer Pavel Baňka and his endless dreamlike landscapes, works inspired by surrealism and dadaism. It will show that a photo can also be an escape from gray totalitarianism, a play of lights, shadows and mirrors. As a self-taught artist, he never wanted to follow the general rules and ideas too much. His work is rich in a variety of forms, themes and renditions - from portraits to abstract landscapes, which he himself compares to paintings. The work of Pavel Baňka is a lifelong rediscovery of the art of photography.
Do you want to see what Pavel Baňka's photographs actually look like? Be online on December 16 and watch our episode #czechphotographymasterclass organized by #czechcentres on our Instagram @tschechischeszentrumwien and under the hashtag #masterclassbanka.
