Here is a link to the Café Gallery. Take look.

Best known for the hand-colored nudes and staged tableaux he has created for decades, Jan Saudek (1935-) has posed for his own camera but rarely for anyone else's. This small series represents an exception.

This little body of work has been achieved thanks to Jan Saudek, a gifted photographer from the Czech Republic, and his girlfriend Sara.The photographs were taken at his studio in Prague, summer of 1995.

Hello Nina!

Nice to meet you!

I would like to join this Photo Group because I apply digital photography in my job (as a microbiologist) when documenting microscopical preparates, illuminated either with visible light or UV (to activate fluorescence from microbial cells which have abrorbed fluorochromes).

I was very interested in B&W photography in my younger days (long ago) but have no lab for this kind of activity anymore. All negatives are still left. A collection of transparencies about trees, plants, lichens etc. is also spared by me - I keep them in room temperature and dark but have had some ideas to transform them (at least, the best ones) to digital form. Oldest of them originate even from 1960's and I think that it is time to save them soon...

With best regards,
