Jiri and Lucie Bakala - Photographers August 2019

in the South Atrium

Throughout much of her life, Lucie has been travelling and seeking adventures. Photography became a way to experience that and more. As a freelance photographer, she is drawn to landscapes and people she sees during her travels. Her focus is mostly on finding a new way of seeing ordinary objects and environments and sharing that with the world around her. 

Seeing through the lens of a camera has been Jiri’s way of observing the world since he was a child growing up in Czechoslovakia. He started developing and printing his first black and white images of city scapes and the city’s inhabitants at the age of 16 and by the time he was in his early 20’s, he has moved to moving images working for the Czech Television. Today, he continues capturing the world around him as a commercial and art photographer.

Lucie and Jiri are passionate documentary filmmakers based in Kelowna, focusing mostly on natural history, culture, environment, and travel.
