PRESENTATION OF PHOTOGRAPHS IN LEICA GALLERY CAFE
Vendula Mlejnská | CITIES
12| 05 – 18 |06 | 2017
Cities is a black-and-white photographic project which was born five years ago during a study stay in Paris. Over time it has expanded and Paris was joined by other cities, such as Barcelona, Vienna and Dubai, and travelling has thus become a new dimension – to add to the Cities.
This collection will draw you to places and moments that shape the atmosphere of these cities and that make them mysterious, tempting and attractive to us. In Cities, you will find what tourists do not look for and the city dweller does not see and takes for granted every day.
Finding such places is not only about walking with a camera over your shoulder and looking around. The most important thing is to find and meet the soul of the city in question. To find out what it is composed of, which is always very subjective; however, it has a common unifying element. This element is the emphatic ability to observe, not just to look at, the willingness to ask, and going to places that almost seem pushed aside. You simply need to feel the city.
The entire project was shot on analogue film which the photographer processes herself and from which, with the support of Fotoškoda, these prints were created.
Vendula Mlejnská (*1988)
Vendula M. is a Czech photographer whose work also includes videography and who currently lives and works in Prague.
Her photographic beginnings in Uherské Hradiště have left in her a profound relationship with analogue black-and-white photography, and therefore the majority of her non-commissioned work is recorded on film.
Recently, in co-operation with Czech designers, she has started to focus on fashion photography and video, striving for minimalism and focusing on detail and providing space for colour alongside her favourite black and white.
Her work is inspired by music, the world and French film.
In the evenings, she dances to Boney M at home.
