JANEK SEDLAR Born 1987, lives and works in the Czech Republic

Czech Photographer Janek Sedlar grew up in Lipov, a small village in the White Carpathian Mountains, and was greatly inspired by his surroundings. In a place where nature coincides with ancient cultural remains, Sedlar’s early childhood is remembered fondly as being spent outside in nature with his siblings and cousins. Today, Sedlar spends a large portion of his time in the White Carpathian Mountains equipped with his camera to depict the many facets of this wondrous region. With the intention of sharing his own visceral reactions to nature with others, Sedlar illuminates the frame using post production color additions and is able to portray scent, movement and sounds, defying traditional concepts of reality. Sedlar depicts nature beyond its face-value in his photographs of the outdoors and is able to highlight its awe-inspiring mystery, warm familiarity and many untamed moods that simply cannot be put into words.
