Jaroslav Kučera

The photographer Jaroslav Kučera is represented by Leica Gallery Prague.

He was born on 19 December 1946 in the village of Ředhošť in the Litoměřice district. From 1962 until 1966 he studied at Secondary School of Civil Engineering in Mělník. In 1973 he completed his studies at College of Civil Engineering in Prague and became a civil engineer. Immediately after the state examinations he started to earn his living as a „freelance“ photographer.
During the normalization period he was taking photohraphs for some magazines and state enterprises. Following the velvet revolution he stood at the emergence of the Signum Photographic Group, and in 1996 he became a member of  Bilderberg Hamburg agency. In 2006 he founded the Jakura publishing.
