For more than two decades, Jiří Turek, a Prague native, has been in the forefront of contemporary photography, specializing in photojournalism, portraiture, and fine-art fashion images. A graduate of Silesian University, he resided in New York City for four years (2002-2006) during which time he maintained a photographic diary of his experiences in the city.  In 2006, he returned the base of his work and his residency to Prague. During his years as a photographer, Turek has documented wars; worked as an editor; lectured at art schools and conducted photographic workshops. He was awarded the 1998-1999 Czech Press Photo Award First Place Prize in the Art and Fashion category as well as the 2001 Louskáček Advertising Photo Award.
