Description:

Signed and dated with negative number 20 and edition number 4/15 on verso. Ludek Vojtechovsky was born in 1959 in Caslav, currently lives in Pardubice. He started to take pictures at the age of 14, when he was given his first camera. Towards the end of the 1980s he slowly began to abandon the documentation of urban settings--its streets, courtyards and secluded spots. By the mid-1990s he had shut himself off from the present in a dark studio, completely ignoring fashionable and accepted trends in contemporary photography, creating his own intimate black-and-white world. The photographer describes his work this way: "I keep having a persistent dream. I'm getting ready to jump off a bridge into the murky waters of a river... that's what I experience in the darkroom: plunging into a different space, one that is limited to an A4 format piece of black card. The engine driving my work is the endless possibilities where dreams become reality and reality dreams. I want to explore them and come to know them intimately... they line my way forward through a countryside made of games that give sense and life.
