I was born in Slovakia, graduated in Promotional Art Design from the School of Applied Arts, attended photography courses at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and London College of Fashion. My Bachelor of Arts, Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy degrees were completed at the Institute of Creative Photography, Silesian University in Czech Republic.
Since 2016 I have been a member of the Association of Slovak Professional Photographers and in 2017 I became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. As a contemporary artist, my projects have been exhibited in galleries and museums in Europe, North and South America and Asia. In 2016 I was presented with the Photographer of the Year award for the significant contribution to the quality, development and promotion of Slovak photography at home and abroad. In 2018 my short film debut received a nomination for the Short video category in the Slovak Press Photo competition.
I founded and now direct and curate a festival of contemporary photography in Bratislava. The OFF Bratislava is held simultaneously with the Month of Photography and it enriches its program with a platform for fresh talent of the photography scene. For a decade, the mission of the event remains to provide optimum conditions for the presentation and promotion of new artists working with the medium of photography.
