Milota Havránková.

Naučili sme sa nepravdivo žiť.

intro

milota is considered to be an exceptional phenomenon in Slovak and Czech photography. She experiments, breaks traditions, transforms and modernises her personal style. She exploits new technologies and possibilities, transcending photography into architecture, painting and fashion design. She has taught young people for over thirty years, and shaped the “Slovak new wave”, the generation of successful photographers who fundamentally influence the Czech photographic scene. Her creative approach significantly influenced the Slovak art scene, the younger generation in particular.

It is useless to go to school and discuss something if we lack enthusiasm and a desire to be an example and have a clear-cut character.
Do you think that Dostoyevsky was right to believe that beauty can save the world, and therefore morality is actually the matter of aesthetics?
Yes. But the term aesthetics is misleading. People immediately imagine a nice picture. I imagine something else. Sometimes it can be something very ugly, yet beautiful. In the same way as an ugly woman can be beautiful and a beautiful woman can be disgusting.
