Photographers / Michal Macků

Michal Macků (*1963) is often named as one of many artists involved in manipulated and staged photography, the roots of which go back to the second half of the 1980s. Unlike the main representatives: Tono Stano, Vasil Stanek and Miro Švolík, Macků has never followed the playful line of this trend. Instead, he tried to capture internal and mental states from the very beginning of his career. He uses black and white photography, carbon printing and gelling, all of which makes it possible for him to intervene in a photographic emulsion with his creative gestures. In recent years he has been creating spatial objects from glass using his own photographic techniques.
