ABOUT US

We are three independently working creators who have a common interest in fine arts, photography, design, architecture, music and film.

Although each of us has a bit different visual view of the world, in many aspects our (not only) visual experience is connected.

This is what brought our common DATE / Collective Studio into being, concentrating mostly on taking wedding photographs and making films and visual presentations of various genres.

Through her photos, Tereza shows us her view on individual recording of various topics in many photographic genres. Thus we find ourselves in the world full of sensitively created atmosphere, precise documentary freezing of the most interesting moments, naturally exposed interpersonal relationships and sensitive work with natural light. All collections are connected by a clear understanding of the given situation, personality or thoughts related to a certain object. Examples across genres include a photo collection Sisters (Sestry), documentary photos for the project Meeting the Lynx (Setkání s rysem) awarded by Czech Press Photo special jury award and commercial photo collections for jewellers Nastassia Aleinikava and Eliška Lhotská.

Apart from photography, David works as a designer in his own studio, an entrepreneur in the field of glass industry and author of artistic installations and performance and authorial objects.

In his free works, his creation thematically predominantly focuses on depicting everyday reality in society, serial character, cycle and the relation of society to mass-produced products with an effort to confront the past with the present. Formally, these are mostly interactive installations, objects and videos.

At present, though, he prefers design activities under his own brand Valner studio. The main material and technique of this author is manually shaped metallurgical glass. He intentionally lets the originally liquid material the liberty to shape itself naturally. He mostly looks for topics in nature and (as is the case with his free installations) in his everyday reality as well as in the craft itself.

Martin lets us take a look into his own specific perception of the world full of melancholy, 

non-interchangeable atmosphere and attention to detail through experimental videos and free photo collections. No less atmospherically, he also applies his experience gained by his own free creation into commercial videos that, like his freelance projects, are always distinguished by a strong and principal conceptual overlap. Examples of these are fashion videos awarded by international juries for Black., Hoodiemonks and Soulmates collections of designer Michaela Capková or a music video for composition Circles of an electro-pop duo Sundays on Clarendon Road.
