Hynek Alt

Czech Republic, Prague Drdova Gallery

Hynek Alt (CZ, 1976) graduated from the Department of Photography at FAMU and the Visual Research Lab at the State University of New York. Since 2017, he is the head of the Studio of Photography and New Media at the Department of Photography at FAMU. In his work, Alt addresses the theme of the photographic medium as well as the persona of the photographer. He demonstrates the fragility and trickiness of perception of a photographic image. His examination of the relationship with the medium of photography is multi–layered; he uses optical illusions to manipulate the photographic image.
