Bára Prášilová
graduated from the Institute of Creative Photography at Silesian University
lives and works in Prague / Czech Republic

A key role in her work plays her memory, mixture of real and fictional as well as her sense of absurdity. Her visual world consists of imaginary memories of what never happened and explorations of what could have happened if we dropped the habit of drawing our own limits.

Her photographs have a characteristic slightly somber and magical atmosphere and humor, which is obvious more or less, depending on specific projects. Her objects are only mediators of the story, the role models.

Bara enjoys complicating her job with insisting on real props and objects, sometimes made by her, which could in other cases be easily replaced by Photoshop. She frequently distorts figures of her models. Specifically with their feet positioning she is referring to her childhood ballet era.

With all that said, Bara enjoys a satisfying carrier of a fashion and portrait photographer with a recognizable style. No matter if she`s working for a client or doing her own projects, she is always following her signature style. Erasing the borderline between a commission photography and fine art, Bara is creating a category of her own.

With several awards in both fine art and commercial area and exhibitions in the Czech Republic and abroad, in 2009 she has been selected one of the Quiksilver ambassadors and awarded a Photographer of the year title by the Academy of Design of the Czech Republic, Czech Grand Design. In the latter, she won again two years later and is honored with being listed among this year`s nominees again.

Bara has been elected one of the Hasselblad Masters this year and is working on her project for Hasselblad Masters' Book recently, as well as fulfilling other photography works, blending commercial photography with fine arts.
