Alžběta Jungrová
She started taking photographs while she was still at school. She studied at the Graphic Technical School in Hellichova Street and then worked for MF Dnes and Hospodářské and Lidové noviny daily newspapers. Between 2000–2002 she lived in the USA and London. She first worked as a documentary and reportage photographer because she is interested in people, their lives and their stories. She’s travelled to various corners of the world and often found herself in precarious situations - she waded through the biggest garbage dump in Cambodia, through oily mud in ship scrapyard in Chittagong in Bangladesh; she photographed armed children and civilians in Gaza Strip, drug addicts at the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan. She also spent time with the Nukak tribe in the Columbian rainforest.
She was awarded an Honorary Mention in the Czech Press Photo contest for her series of images of children working in a brickyard in Peshawar and the UNHCR prize for her series from a Burmese refugee camp in Bangladesh.
She is a freelance represented by 4D Photo, one of the most prestigious commercial photographic agencies.
Currently she is working on several personal projects, commissioned reportages, advertising photography, fashion and portraits.
