Collection The Holyday

limited edition of 5 author´s copies

The Holyday, 2019

In this collection I focus on the stereotypes connected with the Czech society. I intend to capture the so-called Czechness in the photographs and also to create a sort of a prototype of a typical Czech vacation. For this purpose, I have chosen the holiday destination most popular for the Czechs, Croatia. 

I have worked on a principle of pairs. In these, I always combine an authentic picture from a holiday stay, downloaded from the Rajč website, and a studio photo. The studio pictures develop on, paraphrase or complete the actual ones. They can function both in the original pair sets as well as they can be read and interpreted separately. 

Humour and irony are the key elements of the work as it was my primary attitude to choose the most bizarre phenomena of the Czech vacations. In some cases, however, I simply develop on the amateur pictures by my own free association (e.g. the pair a bus x inflatable pillow or scuba-diving x a Rama box containing shells and pebbles etc.).  D.
