Czech born and bred, Ozzie by choice…
Born and educated in the Czech Republic I have been calling Australia home since 2002.
Both, my Dad and Grandpa were keen amateur photographers and used to let me help them develop photographs in their pitch-black room only illuminated by a safelight and containing an enlarger and trays with chemicals that smelled disgusting. Witnessing black and white images magically appearing from a big white NOTHING into SOMETHING was fascinating for me as a small kid!
I am still absolutely mesmerised by light and have always loved having these small snapshots of those moments we may not remember without a photo and sharing my passion with others is just a bonus.
That’s my story. What’s yours? Can’t wait to find out!
