Where are you from?
Prague, Czech Republic
Do you know about something more beautiful?
How long are you into the heavy industry?
What is the goal of your project?
To document this inevitably disappearing part of our culture for next generations, who will soon have no idea what a rolling mill or a blast furnace used to look like.
Are you shooting something else?
No, unless I am paid for it.
What is your favorite mill so far?
Any active one.
Who are your favorite photographers?
Clyde Hare, František Krasl, Václav Jirásek, Bernd & Hilla Becher, Gregory Crewdson, Alexander Gronsky
It is hard to get permission to take pictures inside an active plant ?
Yes it is and it´s getting more and more difficult every year. Getting into a mill in Western Europe or USA is nearly impossible now. The heavy industry is struggling hard and the companies just doesn´t want to be exposed. Too bad for me, but I understands that.
Are you selling your photographs?
Sure, feel free to contact me through the contact page.
Do you have some upcoming exhibitions?
No, no time and reason for that now.
Are you planning to publish a book?
I´d love to, but haven´t found enough sponsors yet. If you are interested to participate or know someone rich, let me know.
Can we share your work?
Absolutely, but you can share my work only if you include my name, website: www.viktormacha.com and link to my Facebook page. However, you can not use my photos without my permission in any publication. In such case don´t hesitate to contact me.
What is your gear?
I am currently working with Nikon D800E with couple of zoom and tilt-shift lenses. But still keeping my Sinar F1 and Mamiya RZ67 Pro II ready..
