Petr Civiš

Czech Republic

Petr Civiš was born and spent most of his life in Kutná Hora. He has been interested in music and photography since his youth. He started with analog photography and only after the boom of digital cameras he fully dedicated himself to capturing the world around him. Although surrounded by Gothic monuments and forced to be physically active, he became more and more fascinated by the miniature world of invertebrates and small vertebrates and dedicated all of his free time to their study. This led him to study ecology at a university in Prague, where in 2013 he successfully completed his doctoral studies. Petr found a job at Nikon, and has been working in the microscopic division till now. Since then, he dedicates his free time to traveling and underwater photography. The city of Kutná Hora still takes up a big place in his heart and that is why he tried to celebrate and capture its beauty in this photo guide.
