Jitka Hanzlová's photographs are equally captivating for their objectivity and their empathy; the composition feels polished yet coincidental, the colors are soft and fragile and yet they lend a tangible materiality to what is portrayed.

The catalog accompanying the artist's first survey exhibition at the Fundación Mapfre, Madrid, gathers together her most important series from 1990 till today: "Rokytnik", focusing on the artist's hometown in Eastern Bohemia, is followed by "Bewohner" and "Here", explorations of the Ruhr environment; for "Forest" the artist returned to the forests of her Czech homeland. Presented are also the series "Brixton", "Cotton Rose", and „There is Something I Don't Know“, as well as the most recent horse and flower series.

Hanzlová (*1958 in Náchod, Czechoslovakia) came to Germany in 1982 and studied photography in Essen. Among other awards, she has received the Otto Steinert Prize and the BMW-Paris Photo Prize. Her works have been exhibited at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg, Museum Folkwang in Essen, the Fotomuseum Winterthur and Amsterdam's Stedelijk Museum. Her books "Rokytnik" (1994), "Bewohner" (1996), "Female" (2000) and "Forest" (2006) are today coveted collector's items.
