Michal Zahornacky is professional fine art photographer from Slovakia.

The main role in his photography plays the human. He mainly focuses on fine-art and conceptual portraits. He brings thoughts and moods to his photographs which he always shows in unclear imagination.

In his newest series Curves, he displays other, original look of portraits. It goes beyond the classical beauty and prefers an abstract image of the photographed man. He tries to distort the perfect symmetry of the shape so that the final portrait looks at first as an abstract painting. Curvature of the image is achieved by using physical properties of clear water. The water in motion creates irregular curves of the object.
