“The photos are playing with the idea of a classical body in a country that is usually transferred to surreal forms. In some photographs, the body tries to be part of an environment where it comes to contrast and conflict. Forms are active and dynamic, trying to influence the environment – move elements. The other images are passive, even meditative as if they just wanted to stay unnoticed at that moment. Bodies exist without identity remain in the spectator’s fantasy.”

“The whole project gently crosses the line of seriousness and mysteriousness with childish playfulness and naivety. The core of the project is a fascination with nature, a sense of curiosity and the search for new worlds, a passion for tension. The author wanted to experiment with the different way how to approach contemporary fashion photography. The project was created in cooperation with several talented fashion designers from the UK, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, who were inspired by and concept of the project.
