Tonight, a not-to-be-missed exhibition opens at the Klompching Gallery in Brooklyn, showcasing two wonderful talents, the amazing Ken Rosenthal, and brilliant Vojtech V. Slama. I featured Ken’s work on Lenscratch recently, but was not familiar with the work of Vojtech. His Silver Bromide prints from his series Wolf’s Honey, are surreal, layered, evocative, and timeless. I am now a fan.
A Czech photographer, Vojtech received his degree from the Institute of Creative Photography at Silesian University, Opava, Czech Republic. His work has been exhibited widely at galleries such as Brno Gallery (Czech Republic), Prague House of Photography (Praha), Fotoforum West (Austria), Photeur Gallery (Germany), Blue Sky Gallery (USA), LEICA GALLERY PRAGUE (Czech Republic), Centro de la Imgen (Mexico), Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (Japan) and FotoFest Houston (USA). His work is held in collections, public and private, all over the world.
In 2006, Sláma was one of ten photographers identified as a Fotofest Discoveries of the Meeting Place. His photographs have been reproduced in publications such as Host Magazine, Imago Magazine, Digi Foto and European Photography.
