Jan Hamrsky

Lives in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic where I studied photography, art and design. I have always been attracted to nature, water and the life in it. I can spend hours watching insects and exploring the hidden worlds of all the tiny creatures. Once I got into photography, I knew it was only a matter of time before these two interests came together. Eight years ago, I came across a book devoted to macro photography, where I found some pictures of freshwater invertebrates. I was absolutely stunned by the photographs of these unseen animals. Since then, I have been trying to study and document the fascinating world of freshwater invertebrates. My long-term goal is to create a growing photo collection and bring quality and aesthetic images of these fascinating animals inhabiting the streams and ponds around us.
