BIOGRAPHY

Angelo Purgert, born on October 24th, 1965 in Prague, is an internationally-acclaimed award winning photographer, lecturer and member of the Photographic Art Federation. In 2010 Angelo exhibited his original První Republika inspired photos side by side works by the legendary Alfons Mucha in Prague’s famed art nouveau Municipal House. Angelo breathes life into the surrounding environment, people and nature. He is passionately involved in charity with a focus on children. His own childhood recalls crackling fires and the scents of the forest as he grew up in a cabin by a forest lake with his father, who introduced Angelo to a Flexart camera, sparking his lifelong passion. Angelo’s style is referred to as lyric photography.

Back in Prague he studied at photography and printing school, drawing inspiration from the Golden City at every turn. Even today he is still fascinated by Prague’s diversity, atmosphere and unique overlapping styles. His first works were published in 1994 in “The Best of Prague” collection, printed in eight languages. In 2001 Angelo received first place in the “Prague in Love” competition. “Celebrity Portraits” is Angelo’s biggest charity project, on which he cooperated with renowned Czech actors from film and theater. Meanwhile, his “The Other World” project uncovers the forgotten beauty of natural life that gave birth to today’s modern civilization.

In 2018, the Czechs celebrate the 100th anniversary of the First Republic and so does Angelo In cooperation with Omega publishing house he is issuing a limited edition set of 100, leather bound, First Republic books.
