I would like to publish my photo book – Chimera.

It is a limited edition of an author photo-text book, which shows a very complicated transformation from a man to a woman in its first year.

I decided to publish this book with the help of hithit.com, a Czech crowdfunding website. Support the book and help with its publishing. Not only you’ll own a unique limited edition book, but you’ll be able to choose from other rewards too.

240 pcs. in Czech   
60 pcs. in English 


Chiméra has been exhibited at 3 worldwide photo festivals amongst the best Photo Dummy Books of the last year. The book traveled through 13 countries and 18 festivals thanks to its success. (Fotobook Festival Kassel, Self Publish Riga, Singapore IPP)

CHIMÉRA photo project in Les Recontres Arles 2018 - The Family of No Man

The Family of No Man will be one of the main curatorial events at Arles Cosmos 2018. It will consist of an open call to female and inter-gender artists working in the medium of photography. The call will result to a series of outdoor & indoor installations and activities that will take place during the six days of the fair. The aim of this radical curatorial proposition is to revisit Edward Steichen’s original Family of Man exhibition (1955), which, in its time, was described “as one of the most ambitious undertakings in an art museum”. The Family of No Man will seek to replace the visual register of white male dominance inherent in the original project with an inclusive visual platform of how the world is seen today through non-male eyes.
