photographer | videomaker
I am Zuzana Fajmonova, I was born in Liberec. I also live here, but I take photos and videos all over the country and I will travel abroad to visit you. Besides my children and husband, I find inspiration in classical music, jazz, visual art and the works of the old masters. Baroque gave the world a twilight without which I cannot imagine my work today. Modern art shows me the way to work with colour and create abstract compositions. Black and white photography is a classic that sometimes says more than a whole palette of colours.
We spend evenings and days at home working on our art. But not only that. We’re the parents of two great boys. As it is the case with children, they are both an endless well of inspiration and an insurmountable obstacle to the implementation of ideas.
I don’t just take pictures for a living. The video is just one step off. I also shoot wedding videos, music videos and commercials. Video is a bit more of a challenge than photography. You can work not only with images, but also with music and spoken word. Emotional music will bring a tingle to your back even in a boring product video. But those are cheap ants. I don’t care about them. They run, they disappear and nobody remembers them. They won’t stay with you.
