Motto:
“Nude photography is about a trust between the photographer and his model, about a dialogue between people.
It’s about stopping time, about a dream fullfilled.
It’s about a courage to unmask oneself, because nudity in photography speaks about the nakedness of the photographer.
It’s about a technique which we gave life to and now are dominated by it.
The nude is about those who give us life.”


Hynek Čermák was born into a family of artists. Both parents are graduates of the Art School at Hollar square. His sister studied photography. Hynek studied a technical subject at SOU and graduated as a mechanic.
His father Bedřich Čermák often worked with nudes in his art. His mother Jarmila Hannah Čermáková often works with female nudity and motherhood in her paintings and poems as a symbol of hope and freedom.
Hynek’s relationship with beauty evidently comes from his family and he presents it through the female body. However much it may seem that it’s only about an erotic symbol, he hopes that the viewer will also feel the courage, humility and platitude that nakedness inspires. It is a fascinating chance to stop time, which the creation of nude photographs offers.
It is said that actors have gentle souls. Even though Hynek Čermák plays mostly rough men, towards women he behaves as though they were goddesses. When he photographs women as a hobby, he likes to tell them that they are beautiful. He then creates beautiful photographs, and they also help.

“I have been photograhing nudes for many years and I have to say that I really enjoy it. I try to sell the exhibition photographs as part of the fight against breast cancer. Simply - breast for breast. I don’t overestimate the quality of the photographs, I think that ninenty percent have sold because I am a popular actor and the money goes to a good cause”, the author says modestly.
