Matus Granec

is documentary photographer based in Bratislava, Slovakia. He was born in 1991 in the little town of Prievidza in Slovakia where he was led into photography by his grandmother, a former documentary photographer. He stood on his own two feet in 2008 and made up his own opinion on photography.

First he found himself in reportage and street photography. Later, he added people to his reportage who weren't just random passersby anymore. Then he was looking for curves and the right light to capture these individuals at their best. One year after his graduation he started to photograph professionaly. He traveled to England, (more precisely to London) where he worked as a commercial and fashion photograher. After this he came back to Slovakia and from 2015 he works as a freelance photographer in the capital city.

Hidden Antinomy

personal projects

Antinomy (Greek ἀντί, antí, "against, in opposition to," and νόμος, nómos, "law") literally means the mutual incompatibility, real or apparent, of two laws. Hidden antinomy is about people, about my close friends, family and contradictions that are part of their lives.

Many shades of Bratislava

personal projects

Bratislava is the capital city of Slovakia.
The nature disappears and the urbanism has no borders.

I have tried to show to people the nature and its importance. Many shades becouse of a lot of smog, a lot of meaningless buildings and many closed eyes of Slovaks.
