David Pokorny has a degree in architecture and structural engineering from the Czech Technical University in Prague. When in his teens, his father gave him an old Voigtländer camera and he became instantly hooked on photography and the dark room process. During his university studies, he focused on photographing mostly architecture. Later, as part of his professional practice in conservation of heritage buildings, he produced a large body of photo-documentation of historic facades throughout the Czech lands. He has always been fascinated with the interplay of light with lines and textures that form planes, spaces, and mass. He understands that these characteristics are not limited only to architecture as he seeks other subjects as well. Now retired, he devotes more of his time to photography: partly to revisit his past analog work, partly to experiment with the limitless possibilities of digital photography.
