Czech-born photographer Jiri Rezac inherited a passion for travelling and living in various places from his immigrant parents who left socialist Czechoslovakia in their quest for personal freedom and happiness. By the age of 25, Jiri was on his 6th passport and has seen and worked in more than 30 countries spread across Europe, Asia and America.
He developed a passion for photography at the age of 19 after leaving Germany and settling in Bangladesh where he worked as a teacher trainer in a rural education project. During his 20-month long stay, he became interested in documenting the daily lives of ordinary people. Showing a different side of the commonly stereotyped Bangladesh as a flood and hurricane-stricken country devoid of the bright sides of life became a mission for him.

His reportage on the Bangladeshi shipbreakers is phenomonal. Click here In fact his whole website is well worth spending time with. Click here

He has photographed people as diverse as Train Robber Bruce Reynolds, Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood and Tony Blair.

His pictures have appeared in The New York Times, The Guardian, The Independent, The Daily Telegraph, The Sunday Telegraph, The Times, The FT, Tatler Magazine, and many other publications worldwide. He also works with Christian Aid.

Jiri has very generously given us four stunning prints to auction. Click on each image to enlarge.
