Jan Durina


Untitled (Self Portrait With Martu)


The turn towards observation and mysterious voyeurism in the works of Jan Durina comes after a previous preoccupation with directed photography. Connections between observed reality, substantiality of the moment, personal experience with the photographed persona and the desire to portray mutual relationships simultaneously links us to nature – sleeping trees, force of the wind and the energy of the water. The figures are not just mere human bodies with strong visual energy, they are interconnected by relations and experience – genuine individuals. This connection of intimacy, the exposed human body and poetry of needs, are spoken of in the works of Jan Durina with implicit frankness, almost lightness.
