Radovan Baran is a Slovak freelance photographer based between Bratislava and Vienna. His approach is characterised by minimalism and geometric compositions with the human element occurring unexpectedly. His work is strongly influenced by the atmosphere of his hometown Bratislava. The motifs of bridges, cranes, lifeless roofs and the stairs seemingly leading to nowhere dominate his photographic language. In the cities that he knows intimately, he predominantly shoots in black and white. Conversely, when traveling and exploring new places, he often switches to colour.
