Jiri Rezac is a professional photographer who travels worldwide for editorial, expedition and corporate projects for magazine clients and campaigning organisations. Jiri's pictures have appeared in leading publications such as Geo, National Geographic Books, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, The New York Times, Der Spiegel, FOCUS Magazine, FACTS Magazine, The Guardian, The Sunday Telegraph and The Times as well as in a variety of corporate magazines, reports and websites. In recent years he has also undertaken extensive assignments on global environmental issues for organisations such as Greenpeace and the World Wildlife Fund.
Many moons ago, Jiri developed a passion for photography whilst working as a teacher trainer in a rural education project for a small NGO in Bangladesh. He stayed for nearly two years and learned to quietly document the daily lives of ordinary people. Whilst he was learning about the magic a camera can produce, he joined a collective of romantic photojournalists called MAP based in Dhaka, Bangladesh and started taking on assignments for NGOs and related publications.
