was born in 1987 in Southern Moravia, Czech Republic. His hometown Lipov is a small village in the White Carpathian Mountains, in an area called Horňácko. The region features many places, where cultural remains of our ancestors have been preserved. These places, where nature mixes with ancient culture, where the playgrounds of Janek’s childhood. They are the settings of the most beautiful memories of his early years, a time of freedom spent mainly outdoors with his brother and cousin. Their games were witnessed by the pure presence of nature. From these early experiences stems his connection and close relationship with his surroundings, where his happy childhood is eternally present. Today Janek spends long hours in the White Carpathians, exploring and trying to capture his favourite places in all their different moods.
