Dutch/Czech photographer Tony Dočekal (Amsterdam, 1992) studied photography at ArtEZ University of the Arts, where she graduated in 2015. Dočekal's cinematic film photography has since then been featured, published, and awarded in various exhibitions and competitions, such as winning the Olympus Young Talent Award in 2018.
After an artist residency at KALA Art Institute in 2019 in Berkeley (CA), where she experimented with different printing techniques, Tony is currently on a mission to collect stories and share an insight into the life of people experiencing homelessness together with the Dutch non-profit Sheltersuit Foundation.
This intimate documentary reflects the unraveling of society and exposes the equal measures of strength and vulnerability of each of its characters. All topics that can be found in most of Tony’s work, whether it is art projects, or work for clients like Chloé, UNICEF, and socially engaged, in-depth photojournalism.

“Known for her contemplative compositions that refreshingly go against the aggressive barrage of imagery that overwhelms our screens and lives, Tony Dočekal reflects on the world’s current struggles with quarantine in Social Distancing."

“I chose to work with Tony because, as a documentary photographer, she has a talent for capturing everyday scenes from an unexpected angle and for taking pictures of people without revealing their identity (sometimes a much-needed skill when taking photos in schools).”
