Pavel’s interest in photography started during his university studies and resumed after his retirement. He started as a landscape photographer, but he now photographs to express his thoughts, ideas, moods, interests, views, attitudes, sense of humour and perception of the world around him. The inspiration comes increasingly from modern visual art and less so from photography alone. For many years, he has been an accredited judge in photography competitions for the Greater Toronto Area and he has also judged international competitions. His work has been presented in daily news media (Globe and Mail) and photo magazines (Aubade Magazine, Photo News). He has exhibited in several juried exhibitions galleries in Ontario and Quebec in Canada, in Hong Kong, Manhattan, Brooklyn and London, England. He is currently represented by Viridian Artists in Manhattan.
Pavel is driven by his interest to learn more about photography and art.
