Robert Vano

Robert Vano (born 1948) is a Slovak photographer living in Prague. Vano was born in Nové Zámky, Czechoslovakia, to parents of Hungarian descent. After his exams in 1967, instead of joining the armed forces for duty, he emigrated via Yugoslavia and Italy to the United States where he made a living as a hairdresser and makeup artist. Later on, he worked as an assistant for photographers (Horst P. Horst, Marco Glaviano or Leo Castelli). Since 1984 he has worked as an independent photographer. He worked in New York City, Paris, Milan, and Prague, where he photographed for fashion magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Harper’s Bazaar, and Vogue. Since 1995 he lives in Prague, wherein from 1996 to 2003 he worked as artistic director of the Czech edition of the Elle magazine, and then from 2009 to 2014 as creative director at Czechoslovak Models. Since then he has worked as a freelance photographer. Vano is primarily a fashion and commercial photographer. He makes black and white portraits and male nudes on film and also a now little-used technique of platinotype. He prefers photographing in daylight. In 2010 he was awarded the European Trebbia Award for creative activities. Vano’s largest exhibition called The Platinum Collection, referencing his signature technique, took place in Prague’s Mánes venue in 2009.

Roger Ballen (born 1950) is an American artist living in Johannesburg, South Africa. He born in New York in 1950 but for over 30 years he has lived and worked in South Africa. His work as a geologist took him out into the countryside and led him to take up his camera and explore the hidden world of small South African towns. At first, he explored the empty streets in the glare of the midday sun but, once he had made the step of knocking on people’s doors, he discovered a world inside these houses which were to have a profound effect on his work.
