In the early 1980s, Jitka Hanzlová left former Czechoslovakia for Germany, where she studied Photography and Visual Communication in the city of Essen. Her first photographic series, Rokytník (1990 – 1994) brought her critical acclaim and her work has since been exhibited internationally, e.g. at the Fotomuseum Witerthur in 2001. In 2006, we presented her Forest series at our gallery. More recently, in 2012/2013, her works have been shown at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh and at the Fundacion Mapfre in Madrid. Following their presentation at major international institutions, many of the photographs in the present exhibition can now be seen for the first time in a more intimate gallery setting.
