I made my first steps in taking pictures with my first camera (an Agfa Silette I which he still owns) at the early age of 6 years, and further photography became an important part in my life. With ‘Light upon my Face’ (now simpler “J. F. Novotny Photography”) I want to share a part of my work, photographs I took on my journeys around the world, mainly Europe, North and South America.
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 new Pentax K-1 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).
Yes, as there are the curated presentations at Werkladen, Art Upfront, Saatchi Art, artsy and aristoprint. Photographies and diverse photo series have been featured on CNN.com, french LUI magazine, german STERN.de, AESTHETICA mag, fotoMAGAZIN, ProfiFoto, La Reppublica Italy, Withers worldwide, to name a few.
All images presented here are meant as insight into my photographic works. As the visitor might see a lot of the presented photos are scanned from original film negatives (which are my property, of course :).
