Jaroslav Plocek has been photographing openings of Litomyšl for more than ten years. Not only for his pleasure but also for the organizers who asked him to do so. In the first case, these are the snapshots that often capture the unusual situations occurring at these cultural and social events. And it is the selection of such images with brief comments that the author presents. However, some photographs cannot be published.
Jaroslav Plocek was born in 1968 in Litomyšl and lives in Česká Třebová. He has been photographing since the beginning of the 21st century. He has presented his work at the Česká Třebová Municipal Library (2011), at the Svitavy Factory (2013), at the Česká Třebová Cultural Center (2015) and the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic (2016). He is represented in the collections of the Association of Czech Photographers. In 2010, together with the Brno poet and amateur naturalist Miroslav Fišmeister, he published the book "I Went Through That City… Česká Třebová through the Eyes of a Photographer and Poet" (“Šel jsem tím městem… Česká Třebová očima fotografa a básníka”).
