«Martin Kollar is Slovak. Not without humour and originating from a country with a strong photographic tradition, he has chosen the still image to uniquely document a nation changing from socialism to capitalism and the nationalist concerns rooted in this transformation.
Immediately drawn toward the happy nature of colour photography, he offers us an array of amusing snapshots of situations on the edge of absurdity. Simultaneously, he is keenly aware of how to keep the necessary distance to properly reveal the bizarre.
This completely disrespectful photography is nonetheless celebratory, while maintaining a serious critique of our lifestyle and the way we occupy space.»
