With Wolf's Honey, Vojtech V. Sláma offers a wonderful glimpse of his world—days spent with friends, observations of his artist peers, visits to places and events, glances of strangers, still life and figurative studies—all personal vignettes inherently connected to the tradition of Czech photography. Together, they reveal Sláma's fascination with the beauty of ordinary life and moments that he snatches without fanfare and yet with such poetic force.
Stunningly rendered by the artist into Silver Bromide prints, the photographs are quiet, melancholic and at times—timeless. Ultimately, they form an intimate celebration of the art of looking, the craft of the traditional print and the transformation of the overlooked into something quietly extraordinary.
