Jan Caga was born in a small industrial town Hodonin, Czechoslovakia in 1976. After graduating from university in Art Design he began working as a freelance magazine/journal photographer. Later he started to work on long-term projects exploring the state of mind and the diversity of society. Because life is such a rich and still open book and the world is constantly changing. It's not just wars, social problems and riots as intentionally presented in the media. Naturalness, pleasures, sorrows and subtle nuances that differentiate one man from another. Of course interaction between beings. Man create and transform the world in its image and attempting to do the best he can. For a photographer, the globalization does not make the world smaller, but instead of it, creates a new and wider context.
Jan has received numerous awards in photography such as several prizes in the Czech Press Photo Contest, Award of Excellence in the Pictures of the Year International competition, Grand prize PhtoEspana OjodePez Award of Human Values, International Photography Award, PX3 Prix de la photographie Paris, Kaunas Folioport, Photo Annual Awards etc.
Jan lives in Brno, Czech Republic, with his wife Veronika and two sons, Jachym and Matej.
