Finalist - 2003

Michaela Thelenová

Born in 1969

In her photographic series, she deals with the possibilities of manipulation of reality and its influence on the human mind, focusing on the very moments of manipulation. She alludes to the uniformity of man and the landscape he has seized. She manipulates the photographs by adding texts or computer windows. She confronts the real image with an artificially created one, often decomposing the images into individual fragments and re-composing them to produce a different meaning.

1987–1993 Department of Art Education of the Pedagogical Faculty of Jan Evangelista Purkyně University in Ústí nad Labem
