Jana is a documentary photographer based in Bratislava, Slovakia. She has Master's in Documentary Photography and Photojournalism from the University of Westminster, London, UK.
Jana is devoted to document those everyday simple yet special moments, as well as moments when we are at the lowest point of our lives. This passion runs throughout her personal work which expands to the coverage of the more contemporary issues in her home country and the countries she visits, such as themes of humanity, religion or the environment and changes to the environment, which she translates into her own experiences. She creates framework for the human to reflect on the consequences of our decisions and actions. She thrives to create a dialogue between her and her subjects while finding new perspectives and provoking critical views to stimulate the thinking of the viewer.
Her work has been on view recently in the ICP New York (#ICPConcerned GLOBAL IMAGES FOR GLOBAL CRISIS photography exhibition), IN THE WINDS' WAKES - Pop up Documentary Photography Exhibition 2016 and ALTERED STATES - Documentary Photography and Photojournalism MA Graduate Show 2016.
