A cross-section of the photography and other works of Oleg Homola.
The Homoloviny multimedia exhibition is a first in a number of areas. First of all, we are showcasing the contrasting work of father and son next to each other, and secondly paintings can be viewed next to photographs for the first time in the gallery. In his paintings, Honza Homola combines a number of techniques. They are based on a traditional painting technique, but he further adds to the picture using computer programs. The exhibition launches in the Czech Photo Centre gallery on 20 September and continues until 7 October 2018.

A multimedia author, mostly known as a photographer, who also writes, paints, and composes and plays music; Oleg Homola embodies all of this in one person. He has won a numerous leading international and domestic prizes for photojournalism. By the end of the 1980s, he was one of the leading “press photographers” in Czechoslovakia. He was the most sought-after Czech photojournalist abroad. In recent years, he has focused on video production. His sons Honza and Matěj inherited his multimedia interest. His sons are mostly known as the front men for band Wohnout, but they are showcasing painted artefacts at the exhibition.

In the Homoloviny exhibition, we will be showcasing printed photographs and period enlargements 30 years old and over. Many of them are accompanied by hand-written notes. In this exhibition, for example, you will see the first photo of Václav Havel together with his second wife Dagmar Veškrnová. You will also see photography of North Korean dictator Kim Il-Sung being helped down steps by his guards, a “forbidden topic” which grabbed North Koreans attention.

Also exhibited is one of the most well-known pictures for the American publication series A Day in the Life of, in which the author has captured a girl in the air above dunes at the Dnieper in Kiev. Also showcased are time-lapse images of Oleg’s sons Matěj and Honza from Wohnout, and popular Czech show business stars of the 1970s and 1980s. Also on display are period magazines and Oleg’s stories. The common link between most of the photographs is humour – and so the second prize in the prestigious international competition Humorphoto, “Manneken Pis” can also be viewed at the exhibition. For the curious, a brain teaser competition can also be played, involving questions such as who is smoking a cigarette in this photo – Miloš Zeman, Marta Semelová or someone else?

Oleg’s videos are also been screened, and you can also look into the peephole of secrets...!
