is a photographic artist from Prague in the Czech Republic.

Vladimir takes his photographs almost exclusively "the old way", with a large format box camera (8" x 10" Toyo or 4" x 5" Linhoff) with black and white film.  He then processes the images himself through a chemical process used in traditional black and white photography.  

Vladimir photographs mainly portraits and female nudes.  His ambition is to continue working in the spirit of world renowned Czech photographer Frantisek Drtikol (1883-1961), but in his own, more modern way.

Vladimir was inspired to create his own photography at the age of 35 upon discovering that his grandfather, who was himself a photographer, had left behind old photographic material, which Vladimir has since been able to utilise in his own experiments.
