Meet Carlos, a photographer from Peru now capturing Brno and her people. Photo: Carlos Lopez

Brno is full of talented people, and some of them are not originally from the Czech Republic. We’ll introduce them one at a time. This month, meet Carlos Lopez, a professional photographer still taking pictures for the love of photography. 

While most public events have been put on hold for a long time – there are no concerts, performances or exhibitions – the people who have art and creativity as part of their lives are still here. We decided to highlight these people through a series of articles and videos on our blog. Carlos is one of them. He studied photography back in Peru, in 1998, and has been taking pictures since then. In Brno, he also works as a team leader in an IT company, although he treats that as a hobby. „There are two aspects in my photography,” Carlos says. “The commercial part serves a customer’s needs. From the personal aspect, I don’t expect to make money and I don’t do it for money. It is done for love and the need to express or release something regardless of what the spectator may think.“ Read the whole interview at our blog.

Brno Expats and Lockdown – how are we faring?

On 12 March, it’d been a whole year since the CR declared the 1st state of emergency. For this rather grim anniversary, we asked foreigners living in Brno how they’ve been dealing with the challenges of the past year (and of today).

Online Programmes Offered by Museums and Galleries

Even these days there are still several ways to enjoy art. The first one is the online collections that museums and galleries offer. So from the comfort of your own home you can admire, for example, the digitized painting Head of Medusa, which returned to the Moravian Gallery in Brno this March.
