About Artist

Petr Vapenik

I´m a self-taught photographer originally from the Pilsen region (West of the Czech Republic), now living in Dobrichovice near Prague. I have been involved in photography since childhood, first only with B&W and home-made photos, later with color and infrared pictures. I have been exhibiting publicly since 2013. I try to make visible what is often not seen at first glance, so called “pictures from behind-the-light”. I like using of the very long exposure times in various areas of the spectrum and non-traditional work with lenses. In the last three years, my photographs have been shown at joint international exhibitions and in foreign photographic magazines. My pictures are parts of several private collections and they complete the interior of many apartments and companies.
