Tina Bara
Tina Bara (*1962, Kleinmachnow, DE) is an artist and professor. She became known for her intimate photographic body portraits in the 1980s, that represent a generation of young people who no longer believed in the socialism of the GDR. In 2016, the photographic film “Lange Weile” was created on the basis of this material and a commenting soundtrack. In the 1990s, she was mainly dealing with fragmentary representations of the body and she observed the vague attitude to life in her changing neighbourhood by means of portraits and urban architecture. Since 2000 she is interested in photographic portraits of women. In photographic series and videos she is researching on various aspects of female biographies and strategies of self-empowerment through the appropriation and deconstruction of male-occupied stereotypes. In collaboration with Alba D'Urbano she has been working since 2000 on several installations, as well as curated projects and books.

Dirk Braekman
Yvon Chabrowski
Yvon Chabrowski (East-Berlin, DE) Her work deals with the visual formulas of contemporary media, which she decontextualizes, making them tangible by creating a reflexive distance. Her works thus create awareness for the grammar and independent existence of omnipresent media images as well as for the relation of the body to circulating media body images. She studied photography at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig and the École nationale supérieur des beaux-arts Lyon. Her works have been shown in numerous international exhibitions, including at the Arnhem Museum, the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, Kunsthalle Rostock and the Weserburg Bremen.

Jolana Havelková
Jolana Havelková (*1966, Kolín, CZ) In addition to photography, she often uses other means of expression, including video and music. Her work includes conceptual and experimental projects. She also deals with social and artistic events. She graduated from the Institute of Creative Photography at the Faculty of Arts and Sciences of the University in Opava. Between 1993 and 2009, she was a co-organizer and one of the curators of the Funke Kolín Photography Festival. She worked at the Faculty of Applied Arts and Design UJEP in Ústí nad Labem. She currently lectures, leads workshops (including for example FAMU in Prague) and teaches photography at the Secondary School of Design in Lysá nad Labem.

Zdeněk Lhoták
Zdeněk Lhoták (* 1949, Turnov, CZ) works as a freelance photographer and pedagogue. In the field of documentary photography, he focuses on the sociological problems of elite sports (Sparta, 1977-89) and sport competition (Spartakiad,1985) and the issue of unique Tibetan culture devastated by Chinese occupation (1989-94). Between 2001-08 he photographed the subjective documentary series “United Colours of Nepal”. Another field of interest is staged photography: until 1989 he worked on the cycle "Self-Portraits" and he has recently been making installations of life-size photographs of figures in real interiors. He studied at the Faculty of Film and Television, FAMU, Prague. For his photo series Spartakiad he won 2nd prize in the sports category of the Word Press Photo competition in 1986.

Miloš Šejn
Miloš Šejn (*1947, Jablonec nad Nisou, CZ) works in the fields of visual art, performance and study of visual perception, and conducts workshops, such as Bohemiae Rosa. Šejn’s artistic vision formed when he was young and when he undertook many trips into the wilderness. It embodied an inner need to get closer to the secret of nature and observe the miracles that happen in it. He consciously works in the areas of expressive language among text, visual stroke, body movement, voice, and expansion into space. He studied art education, art history and aesthetics at the Faculty of Philosophy, Charles University, in Prague. Between 1990—2011 he directed the Department of New Media at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and worked as a visiting professor at the Academies in Aix-en-Provence, Carrara, Ljubljana, Stuttgart, The Hague and Vienna.

Heji Shin
Heji Shin (*1978, Seoul, South-Korea) is a German-Korean artist. She entered the mainstream with her fashion photographs for the New York-based brand Eckhaus Latta, which she later introduced at the sixth Athens Biennale (2018). She also took part in group shows including the Whitney Biennial (2019) and Maskulinitäten, Bonner Kunstverein, Bonn / Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne / Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Dusseldorf (2019). She has had solo exhibitions at Reena Spaulings, New York (2017), Kunsthalle Zürich (2018) and the Buchholz gallery, Berlin (2019).

Andreas Schulze
Andreas Schulze (*1965, Leipzig, DE). In his work, Schulze deals with a society that relies on a high degree of information. In his comprehensive analysis of the use and consumption of images and texts in mass media and individual contexts, he is particularly concerned with representing and interpreting the entanglement or drifting apart of image and actual experience, of text and perception of reality, of subjective narration and collective orientation. 1995—2002 he studied fine arts at the Academy of Visual Arts Leipzig.

Přes veškerou fascinaci propletenýma rukama na dvojitých expozicích Jolany Havelkové pociťujeme nutkání překrývající se kontury hřbetů rukou oddělit a představovat si je jako jasně rozlišené části těla. Co nám taková reakce napovídá o našem vztahu k druhému? V práci Konstellationen Tiny Bara stojí každá osoba sama za sebe. Těla fotografovaná v ostrém světle na sebe navzájem vrhají výrazné stíny. Jasná dělící linie je viditelná v místě každého kontaktu. Fotografka Heji Shin zachycuje okamžik, ve kterém se od sebe dvě těla oddělují. Její práce zobrazují moment příchodu na svět, kdy se ještě fialově zbarvená hlava dítěte poprvé objeví a postupně se stane někým novým, druhým, pro nás podivným na pohled. Miloš Šejn se ve svých pracích vrací k vlastnímu tělu. Během ponoru do rybníka  se při kontaktu s vodní plochou setkává se sebou samým jako s cizím tělem. Ve sportovních fotografiích Zdeňka Lhotáka z roku 1986 je nabouráván ideál pevné tělesné struktury. Některá z těl, která jsou zachycena při pohybu v bahně, se jeví jako bezhlavé masy. Současné práce Andrease Schulze se zabývají strukturami, ve kterých těla jako taková již neexistují. Veškeré stopy, které po nich zůstávají, jsou buď pouhé fragmenty – oči, ve kterých se zrcadlí touhy, obavy či informace – nebo je jejich absence vymezena plochou černého rastru. Dominance vyříznutého obrazu se objevuje i v pracích Dirka Braekmana. Filmováním fotografie ležící ženy jako by se pokoušel vdechnout zachycené postavě život. V tomto případě však síla fotografického obrazu zároveň poukazuje na nemožnost se k zobrazovanému jakkoli přiblížit. Ve dvojité projekci umělkyně Yvon Chabrowski se postavy ve stejnokroji tlačí proti sobě, z jednoho filmového políčka do druhého. Zdá se však, že není úniku.

Fotograf Festival pořádá Fotograf 07 z. s. pod záštitou hlavního města Prahy a za finanční podpory Magistrátu hlavního města Prahy částkou 400 000 Kč, Ministerstva kultury České republiky a Státního fondu kultury ČR.
