Lucie Haškovcová from the City Gallery Prague has once again prepared a day full of art games and creative work. Photo: Margarida do Ó. ENGLISH FRIENDLY!

Let the photos of world metropolises inspire you to create your own image of the soul of a city!

Jiří Turek was born in Prague in 1965. He studied at the Institute of Graphic Photography and he started his professional career in 1990 as a photojournalist for MFDnes. As a reporter he accompanied President Havel all over the world and reported on the course of wars in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and in the republics of the former Soviet Union. In 1995 he became the editor of the MFDnes magazine and specialized in portrait and fashion photography.

Since 1998 he has been a freelance photographer and he is becoming one of the most acclaimed portrait photographers of the Czech Republic. He has portrayed world mu- sic icons such as e.g. Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Luciano Pavarotti, Lou Reed, Sting and many others. He has photographed front pages, fashion editorials and created CD covers for music publishers. He is also well-known thanks to his photographs for great advertising campaigns.

From 2002 to 2006 he lived and worked in New York, where he continued with his work for magazines and publicity. Here he applied himself to free creation, in which he returns to original reportage principles and black-and-white photography. He works with a number of “forgotten” techniques, above all with “lithprints” technology. (Source: Leica Gallery)

With a contribution of Czech Centre New York, he exhibited in the prestigious Leica Gallery in 2006. We are happy to continue with the cooperation of Czech Centres, jiří Turek and Leica Gallery.

All age groups are welcome. Czech language is not required!
