bio Lenka Rayn H. is a freelance fine art photographer based in London. She completed her photography studies in London in 1999 and since then been working in London, Prague and Zurich. Timing and documentation is a strong part of Lenka's work practice. Her projects document the passing of time through portraiture and social studies. At present she has a number of ongoing series, including sibling resemblance, women close to her, and a documentary of her family. Another project seeks to capture the atmosphere of other artists' work spaces. These places are full of little stories, which she identifies and presents in the form of still life photographs. Each image is a representation of the individual artist's state of mind and their creative process. To Rayn H. these beautiful spaces are an inspiration for her own work. Her main fascination is a human face, the stories that can be read from them, emotions or just striking features. Her portraiture is strongly inspired by pictorialism and by 17th & 18th century portraits. She draws attention to the expression of the sitter achieved by gloomy, often blurry images. Her large format Linhof camera and available daylight is her favorite medium to capture what she finds irresistible about particular face.
