The author was born in 1979 in the Czech Republic. In her documentaries she´s mainly focused on social topics, life of minorities and socially excluded or rejected groups and individuals, using photography as a medium for telling their stories. She also studies through pictures the mutual relationship between people and their places, the way how they influence each other and create an unique genius loci, which she tries to capture.

Aside this works the author on her authentic visual poetry, based on own life go throughs and deeply personal emotional experiences, visualized in a form of lyrical poem-like photographic series.
