We are happy to invite you to Viktor Kolář’s artist talk, accompanying the exhibition of his works “Viktor Kolář. Surrealism of the Everyday”. The event will take place on 10 December 2016 at 2:00 p.m.

Viktor Kolář will share his views on the art of photography, speak on the role of his hometown Ostrava in his work, recall people’s reactions he has confronted with as a photographer, and reflect on the search for the magic moment in the surrounding reality.

Viktor Kolář: “Photographer’s magical ability is to notice miracles in the everyday life. Making a stunning shot is a task of secondary importance. The first and foremost is to recognize the significance of particular situations, to see the essence of what is happening, to see meaning and depth behind the routine doings of everyday life. Photography is life in tune with the life itself. You notice, you pay attention, you analyze details, you remember…”[1]
