Michaela Brachtlová

Michaela Brachtlová

Michaela Brachtlová was born in 1970 in Havlíčkův Brod. She moved to Prague early in her childhood, where she studied photography at the Applied Industrial High School of Graphic Design. Michaela then spent 1990-2000 studying photography at FAMU, graduating with her PhD in 200. She has also studied at Nottingham Trent University (UK), Middlesex University, London (UK) and UCLA (USA).

In 1997 she became an assistant at the Department of Photography at FAMU, where she still works as an abjunct lecturer. Her unconventional look at the photographic act attracted attention during her graduate studies.  Since then, she has exhibited her work widely in the Czech Republic and in many international photography exhibitions.
