"Martin Stranka is a self-taught professional photographer, born on April 13 1984, based in Prague, Czech Republic. Stranka's distinctive vision of photography is etched as a unique space located in a balance and serenity, while his sophisticated and rewarding images exist in that narrow window of a few seconds between dreaming and awakening. During the last years he has won over 40 major international photography awards from different competitions, including Professional Photographer of the Year, Emerging Talent Award in the Nikon International Photo Contest, Sony World Photography Awards, EISA Photo Maestro and International Photography Awards three years in a row.

His solo and group exhibitions have been seen from South and North America, through Europe, all the way to Asia. His photographs have been exhibited in places such as New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Milan, London, Miami, Prague, Hong Kong, Kiev and many more. Stranka's work was presented in prestigious galleries such as Getty Images Gallery and Saatchi Gallery. His work stood proudly alongside the likes of Andy Warhol, Annie Leibovitz, Banksy, Damien Hirst, Helmut Newton, Albert Watson and Roxanne Lowit.

He has created book covers for the biggest New York publishers, such as Harper Collins Publishers and Sterling Publishing. In addition, he has collaborated with other book publishers, music publishers and artists around the world.

He loves the smell of autumn and the sparkling grains of dust floating in the sunset." Read Less
