About my work
Tony Dočekal (Amsterdam, 1992) studied analog photography at AKI ArtEZ University of the Arts.
My work balances between documentary photography and visual poetry.
I’m fascinated by the creating power of the medium. To me it is like a super power. As a photographer you get to decide what goes into the frame and what doesn’t, allowing you to create a world of your own.
The exploration of the concept “truth” and the relationship between time and space are key elements of my work.
I want to capture truths that may never have quite existed, but aren’t lies either. Therefore, showing us that there are many more truths at the same time and place than just one.
“The thing that is important is the thing that is not seen.”
