Prix de la Photographie Paris, 3rd place – category “Book Proposal (Series Only)/ Fine Art”
Luxembourg Art Prize – The Selection Committee’s opinion – We sense a deep and sincere personality in this submission. Very well controlled artistic work. Concentrating on the meaning of the work as a whole could make it stronger as an ensemble. Your work is unique, and it creates a subtle unease that leads the viewer to question its meaning. Well done!

Vladimír Kysela was born in Ústí nad Orlicí and currently lives in Liberec. He graduated from the Czech Technical University in Prague. Photography has accompanied him since high school, from the time he was still intensely considering the career of an artist. He also naturally tends to his painting beginnings in his photographic work.
His work is based on the landscape tradition, but his ambition is to depict the inner stories of the mind mainly in the form of abstract and graphically conceived projects. Always interested in the moment of initiating impulse for landscape rendering. Since 2017 he is a member of the Czech Association of Professional Photographers, APF, since 2019 he is QEP – certified European photographer as well. His projects based on literary stimuli (Karel Hynek Macha, Hans Christian Andersen and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry) were awarded at major international competitions. He regularly exhibits his works in galleries in the Czech Republic and abroad.
Recently, his attention has turned to organising photographic expeditions and courses that aim to understand the work of the chosen artist. Based on this knowledge, in cooperation with other photographers, they capture the environment in which the artist was active, utilising mostly ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) and ME (Multi Exposure) methods. The organisation of workshops, courses and lectures is an integral part of his artistic activities.
