“When I was a young boy, my parents took me to Alphonse Mucha exhibition named The Slav Epic.
To this day I remember the peculiar feeling, as I looked up onto the large canvases, strengthened by the enchanting scents of Krumlov chateau. Even though I was too young to understand what were the paintings about, a naive childish vision emerged in me.  I also wanted to create things so grand and beautiful. Since the moment I was captured by the magic of photography, I daily try to live up to that vision. With great admiration to my fellow townsman, I let his work inspire me.”     Milo
