The photography of Jan Herdlicka

Introducing our new author Jan Herdlicka.

Today we want to introduce you to the photography of our friend Jan Herdlicka. We met each other at university and one of our first conversations was about his passion for the japanese photographer Daido Moriyama and his uncompromising street-photography. Like him Jan is a sensitive and silent observer in the streets of the loud and busy city. A central topic in his pictures is the anonymity of the city. The urbanity as a social space where people get isolated in the middle of millions. Here is a small selection of his berlin-photography.  Check out Jans Page for more!

He prin­ted 25 of his motives with a reg­u­lar injekt printer and sticked them on 6×4 cm cards. The res­ult is just beau­ti­ful. Every pack­age comes with 5 images and if you are lucky you find a “Print” in your deck that gets you a 13×18 print! All you have to do is to like his Facebook-Page and write him a mes­sage with your adress. Dont hes­it­ate because the pack­ages are lim­ited to 50! […]
