Pavel Odvody

Lives and works in Germany.

It is only the shade that describes the light

This is a truly phenomenal, extremely unusual collection of novel picture themes that have barely anything to do with the uncountable daily offerings of photographed pictures in the media, taken in public places or at art museums. So Pavel Odvody’s picture world may appear strange to us at first sight… we are unable to associate a visual experience with it, with only a few capable of sharing his perspective. But of one thing we can be certain: this isn’t today’s way of taking pictures – either as an applied photographer or a so-called free photographer.
