Petr Kurečka is a well-known Prague based photographer with a knack for good vision. His experience covers a number of different fields including fashion photography, cityscapes and charity work, to name a few. LUI sat down with Petr to talk about his new provocative series which is currently in the making.
Originally a drawing and painting student from Ostrava, Petr discovered his talents in photography from life drawing classes. He also spent some time in England where he was inspired by the cityscapes of London. Since then, he has become one of the most well-known names in the photography industry both in the Czech Republic and abroad due to his brilliant and captivating work. Petr's work has been down a number of roads, but some of his most well-known work is with charity calendars. Art for Life, Proměny and the James calendar, to name a few. He also photographed the famous Mr International 2012, Ali Hammoud (pictured below).

Art for Life is a popular HIV awareness calendar that Petr has collaborated with for the last three years. One of his photos included famous Czech actress Zuzana Bydžovská - which he put in an American football uniform to fullfill a life-long dream of hers. Another included singer Tonya Graves surrounded by beautiful men in a sexy tea party that looks very Stanley Kubrick. Although the theme of the calendar changes every year, Petr believes in sticking to an overall theme in his photographs for this calendar; "HIV is about sex, so I always try to exhibit the human body in each photo for this calendar". The latest for 2014 being no exception with ballet dancer Michal Štípa (pictured below).

Recently, Petr christened the brand new James Calendar for 2014. The calendar is made up of a number of black and white photographs of stunning men chosen from finalists of this year's Man of the Year competition. The models are suited up and appear in sexy androgynous James Bondesque poses. The calendar has been made in support of the Dlouhá Cesta (Long Journey) charity.

Petr has a way of capturing the beauty in everyone; "Everyone can be a model, it's my job to make this happen". It's refreshing to see such a reknowned photographer with his feet firmly on the ground.
