As a young boy I was interested in the history of ancient cultures and this passion has been reflected in my artworks in great deal. In 2013 I visited Karnak I Luxor, the breathtaking Valley of the Kings and the gigantic temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Inspired by ancient Egypt I returned to the theme I had covered in 2010 in “The Mummy” works. The Egyptian Transformation ensemble, a modern collection of five portrait photographs, was created as a tribute to Queen Hatshepsut. The Egyptian Transformation V is the last part of the story, when Queen Hatshepsut’s eyes are already covered and the facial expressions say goodbye to our world. Transformation is complete. Created in 2014.
Jozef Danyi (Czech Republic) was born in 1969. He lives and works in the picturesque city of Bruntál. As a self-taught photographer he focuses primarily on portrait photography and his creation has the hallmarks of mastering of a widely opened diaphragm and dramatic utilization of light.
His distinctive work is characteristic not only by its composition but also sensitivity and sensuality. Jozef has been actively participating in the International Photographic Salons since 2012. He represented Czech Republic in the World Photographic Cup which was co-organized also by the FEP (Federation of European Photographers). The same Federation qualified him in 2014 for the European Photographers (EP) and simultaneously granted him the EP title.
He is an active member of the Czech Federation of Art Photography (CFFU) and the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP) which awarded him the Artiste FIAP title (AFIAP in 2014) and Excellence FIAP (EFIAP) title in 2017. Since 2020 Jozef is a member CFA Affiliate Artist (France).
