I'm an independent photographer based in Ostrava, Czech Republic, who enjoys doing pictures the old way, using traditional black & white process and printing in the darkroom. My aim is to capture those moments that will once become precious memories and make them last. I'm also a pinhole enthusiast and vintage camera lover, the strange girl you will mostly find running around with some kind of weird box.

It began about ten years ago. As a student with no experience, I started from the very basics - I created my own camera from a piece of cardboard. It was a very simple pinhole camera. Then I took out my father's enlarger out of the cupboard where it has been stored for years and instantly fell in love with the process. In a bathroom lit only with a dim red light, seeing a picture appear under my hands felt almost like a magic.

For me, photography is an opportunity to meet interesting people, visit places I would otherwise never get to see and share my view with others. If you're interested in cooperation or just want to say hi, let me know at kathudeckova@gmail.com
