Tomas Bican a absolvit Scoala de Fotografie din Praga in 1996 si de atunci a lucrat ca fotograf independent. Si-a inceput cariera captand in imagini periferiile Pragai dar ulterior si-a indreptat obiectivul si catre alte locuri din lume. Activitatea lui artistica poate fi grupata in mai multe etape de creatie, caracterizate de folosirea diverselor tehnici. In prima etapa, el a folosit o sensibilitate mai mare a filmului pentru a surprinde imagini cu Praga intr-o serie foarte apreciata, denumita “The City”. Pentru aceasta el a primit diverse premii in cadrul concursurilor Praha fotograficka si Czech Press Photo. “The City” a fost prezentata si in cadrul binecunoscutei Vaclav Spala Gallery in 2006, de unde a plecat spre expozitii in diverse orase europene.

Expozitia Landscape! contine 12 fotografii in format mare, alb-negru, realizate cu ajutorul camerei de fotografiat de marime medie, Hasselblad. Imaginile din Landscape! sunt surprinse atat in Europa, cat si in tari exotice cum ar fi India sau Brazilia. Cu toate acestea, ele nu sunt imagini documentare. Tomas Bican se concentreaza pe valoarea artistica, astfel incat munca lui este transferata catre abstract. Landscape! este continuarea seriei „The City“ si incheie perioada „patrata“ a artistului.

ENGLISH VERSION

Tomas Bican graduated from the Prague School of Photography in 1996 and since then has worked as a freelance photographer. He began his career capturing the Prague periphery but later his focus shifted to other places in the world. His work could be divided into several creative phases characterized by the use of different techniques. In his first phase he used high sensitivity film to create the images of Prague for the successful series called The City, for which he received awards from the Praha fotograficka and Czech Press Photo contests. The City was presented in the prestigious Vaclav Spala Gallery in 2006 followed by exhibitions in several European cities.

Landscape! contains twelve large-format black and white photographs taken by the Hasselblad middle format camera. The images for Landscape! were taken in Europe as well as in remote and exotic countries such as India and Brazil. However, they are not documentary images. Tomas Bican concentrates on the artistic value and his work shifts to abstraction. Landscape! is a loose continuation of The City series and concludes his “square” period.
