Grain is a podcast where (not only) photographers talk about their work, creativity and life in general.
Grain #6 Vojtěch Veškrna
S prací Vojtěcha Veškrny jsem se poprvé setkal na serveru Seznam Zprávy, kterému jako fotoreportér propůjčuje svůj nepřehlédnutelný styl. Z barvy přechází plynule do černobílé, nebojí se používat blesky a jak sám říká - snaží se více dívat než mačkat spoušť. Své studium na FAMU zakončil knihou My Air Force, která získala cenu The Best East European Photobook v roce 2016 a dostala se na shortlist Anamorphosis Prize. Po studiu pracoval tři roky v polské agentuře Sputnik Photos a asistoval členovi Magnum Photos Rafalu Milachovi.
Grain #5 Libuše Jarcovjáková
Libuše Jarcovjáková (67). Her latest book Evokativ was listed among the best books of 2019 by Aperture and her recent exhibition in Les Rencontres d'Arles gained her much deserved worldwide attention. I meet with Libuše Jarcovjáková in her apartment in Prague. We drink coffee and I listen to her talk about photographing in Czechoslovakia in the middle of the communist regime, her photography projects including work form the first gay clubs in Prague, her work in the Vietnamese and Roma community, photography as therapy and life in general.
