About me

Hello, my name is Marek Šurkala and I am a photographer. Already as a student of philosophy I was interested in what is the meaning of all this. Photography is just another way to approach this question. At the same time I am very sceptical of what photography is able to convey. Influenced by Roland Barthes’ “Camera Lucida”, I believe that photography’s only real ability is to tell “That has been”. Therefore, I try to stick to documentary photography, truthful representation and capturing authentic candid moments. Based in Havířov, Czech Republic.
