Subcultures – Matúš Zajac

Matúš Zajac (*1971) has got the art education at FAMU in Prague and at the Academy of Fine Arts and design in Bratislava where he was fully interested in documentary photography in atelier of Ľubo Stacho. He finished studies in 2003. Consciously he links the document with visual elements. He works on long-term projects – Communities, Forms of faith, Immigrants, Confrontations – Asia and Portraits.

Subculture is outside of commercial influences and in Slovakia it is on the periphery of majority interest. He started to photograph it from 2013 in various nightclubs where young people are seeking a different culture.
