PRESENTATION OF PHOTOGRAPHS IN LEICA GALLERY CAFE
JAN SIBIK A DANIELA MATULOVA| 10 Days with the Huawei P20 Pro
14| 06 – 27| 08 | 2018
Making photos using one’s mobile phone is inconspicuous; the people you are photographing are not afraid of you and behave naturally in their environment. That is a huge advantage. Another advantage is that you – if you are one – are not perceived as a professional. Together with photographer Daniela Matulová, I had the opportunity to try out the award-winning Huawei P20 Pro smartphone with three lenses (focal lengths of28 mm, 80 mm and 120 mm) from the legendary Leica.
It was a great challenge to try out all the mobile phone’s possibilities and to make 13 photographs in just ten days which you do not have be ashamed of when they are exhibited in the Leica Gallery Prague café. Judge for yourself how we did. Jan Šibík
Jan Sibik (1963) has been on 250 assignments all over the world. For twenty years he was head of the photographic department and a photo-editor at the magazine Reflex. He has organised dozens of workshops on photojournalism both in the Czech Republic and abroad. He has been awarded multiple photographic accolades. He has been a jury member for many prestigious competitions.
At the Czech Press Photo awards, he has received fifty accolades in various categories, twice winning the grand prize. In 2004he was awarded in the most prestigious photographic competition, WORLD PRESS PHOTO.
Jan Šibík has also received the June 1 Award bestowed by the City of Plzeň for the dissemination of democratic ideas and defence of human rights. His activities surpass the limits of photography (i.e. a narrow professional interest) and hint at the social responsibility of a person who moves in problematic areas of the world, generally among people who need help.
In 2000 he organised the humanitarian project Give A Hand to Children from Sierra Leonethrough which CZK 1.1 million was raised for handicapped children in this African country. Similarly, in 2005, he organised the humanitarian project I Still Want to Live! to help HIV patients in Odessa, Ukraine, which also raised CZK 1 million.
Jan Šibík has published four photographic books: All the Tears in the World (1997), The Devil within Us (2001), Stories (2006), and Ten Years (2017),which maps Šibík’s work between 2007 and 2016.
Daniela Matulova (1989) has only been photographing for three years. She collaborates with Jan Šibík on organising workshops all over the world and on other photographic projects. She has recently been focusing mainly on the exodus of refugees coming to Europe from Asia and Africa. The central focus of her work is documentary photography. Daniela Matulová also makes photos using a mobile phone. During her short life, she has photographed in dozens of countries and has published a host of stories with Jan Šibík in the magazine Reflex.
