Zuzana lives in Liberec (Czech Republic) and finds inspiration in classical music, jazz, visual art and the works of the old masters. Baroque gave the world a light without which she cannot imagine her work today. Modern art shows her 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.
She spends evenings and days at home working on her art. But not only that. She also is a mom of two great boys. They are both an endless well of inspiration.
Zuzana Fajmonová is creating her own world with photography. She is inspired by the latest trends in fashion, advertising, international artists and the history of art. In her long-term project she recreates the history of art. She always carefully plans each image in advance, creates detailed drawings and sketches. She crafts her own backgrounds, costumes, props and paints the bodies of her models. Her studio has become her apartment and her models are mostly her family and friends. She often includes a self-portrait in each part of her series. She likes to experiment and is constantly looking for new photographic techniques. Besides photography, she also shoots music clips, advertising videos and fashion films. Her biggest passion is the fashion and commercial photography.
