The photographer Jiřina Hankeová is represented by Leica Gallery Prague.
She was born on October 12 1948 in Kladno. She has a wide extent in her production, from drawing and painting, to poetry and lyrics, to photography. She took up photography during her secondary school studies, but eventually she found her creative expression mainly in drawing and painting. She already started to exhibit paintings and drawings in the ´70s. In the ´80s, she was strongly influenced by friendship with the Trasa group, especially by the work of Olbram Zoubek and Válová sisters.
In the ´90s, her activity expanded to lyrics that she wrote for her daughter Lucie´s music. She published several books of poetry: What to do with it, Chlorophyll people, Acrylic poetry, Other views, and Throw the Town Behind One´s Back.
At the turn of the century she again came back to photography without leaving her previous creative activities. She has exhibited her photographs at more than 30 separate exhibitions both in our country and abroad.
