Zdeněk Dvořák

Zdeněk Dvořák was born in Znojmě in southern Moravia, CZ. After graduating from the Secondary Technical School of Food Technology there, he studied special education at the University of Palackého in Olomouc. He now works as a special education teacher in Znojmě, and as a photographer. Zdeněk was introduced to photography by his father, who had a small darkroom. So Zdeněk grew up among the thousands of slides from family vacations. The photos captivated him, and he started creating his own at eighteen when he inherited his first camera - an East German machine by PRAKTICA.

Zdeněk believes that there is no need to travel far to find eye-catching photographs. This has informed his choice to focused on documenting everyday life in southern Moravia. These photos have won several honors, for example his portfolio of the Prčíkovi family was awarded 3rd place in the ‘Daily Life’ category in the prestigious Czech Press Photo Contest. Among his many awards, he can claim the title of Photographer of the Year in the largest competition for amateur photographers in the Czech Republic for two consecutive years - 2008 and 2009 (see his other awards HERE). Zdeněk is also a very active photographer and an editor for the Week of Life project (read an interview about his work on the project HERE).

Zdeněk’s work demonstrates long term focus and sustained concentration; he has explored many themes in his series on life in southern Moravia. Yet it is also evident that he shows a great care and devotes considerable time to the content and composition of each individual images. Dvořák’s photography has received acclaim at both the artistic or commercial level. He is an accomplished artist, examining varied ideas within his work, which can be appreciated on many levels.
