Who is J. „Flynn“ Novotny?

I made my first steps in taking pictures with my first camera (an Agfa Silette I which I still own) at the early age of 6 years, and further photography became an important part in my life. With ‚J. F. Novotny Photography‘ (the former „Light Upon my Face“) I want to share a part of my work, photographs I took on my journeys around the world, mainly Europe, North and South America as well as my concept works CameraSelfies®, ColorLimited, DrowningSky and Symbionts, to name a few.

Today I live in Germany where I – besides my activities as photographer – work as designer and art director in my own agency vivia and film music composer for Intervox music production.

Which equipment has been used?

The equipment (roughly in chronological order) mainly consists of my old Zenit-E, Canon A-1, Contax RTS, Olympus is-100s, Sony R-1, Nikon P-7000, Leica Digilux 2, my beloved Fujifilm X-T1, the great Pentax 645Z, my Pentax K-1, Leica SL-2, now substituted with another Fujifilm, the X-H2, as well as my iPhones. Besides those there were/are a few other cameras in action, like my medium formats Bronica ETRS and Pentax 645N (and diverse rangefinder cameras).
