Lukas Dvorak

Biography

Lukas Dvorak is a Czech photographer born in Prague in 1982. His preference goes to black and white photography, which he compliments with obvious talent. His photographs are characterized by intense emotions, sensuality and erotic tension. The choice of location is as important for him as the choice of model.

With him, the blacks and whites are more charismatic than the images themselves, they are his best narrators. With Lukas, no studio work. In his creations, the surrounding nature is the best source of contrast and inspiration. Nothing can clothe better than nature, and that is why the female body should also be revealed in that way: without any pretence, as a reference to the myth of the original woman; like a return to the birth of Venus.

By presenting his models' flawless, feminine curves in breathtaking scenery, Lukáš Dvorák contrasts their beauty with extraordinary, raw, and wild settings. Through the interplay of nature and nudity, his scenes carry an air of simplicity and pureness.

The artist describes his style as simple. As he explained in an interview, “First and foremost, you must respect the beauty of a woman to capture it in its finest, most impressive form. The three elements of lighting, pose, and facial expression…must be dominated by simple, straight lines." His works betray no hint of the considerable time often required to find the perfect pose. A natural appearance is the most important factor for Dvo?ák; he presents his photographs in a timeless, pure aesthetic, devoting himself to the female nude with composure and continual innovation. The models have an authentic appearance and display a strong sense of character.

One of the most famous Czech photographers of his generation, Lukáš Dvorák rose to international prominence during the many years he spent working in Milan. Although his specialty is black and white nude photography, he has also shot images for renowned magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, Vanity Fair, and Cosmopolitan.
