I am a freelance photographer specialising predominantly on documentary photography and photojournalism. Many of my photos were published worldwide in various newspapers, magazines and publications including Newsweek (USA), El Pais (Spain), NIN (Serbia), NEWS (Austria), Plus 7 dní (Slovakia), Bradt travel guide books and Saferworld (NGO). I am currently based in Slovakia but available for assignments anywhere in the world.
