Miro Svolík belonged to the Slovakian New Wave. This group of young photographers left Slovakia in the 1980s to study at the art academy in Prague. Their free and independent spirit led to wild photographic experiments.
They found the staging of photographs, with the aid of friends, a particularly rewarding tool. Svolík opted for a remarkable camera angle in these. By photographing the ground from some distance above it, he could use it as a background for his humorous and highly imaginative visual stories. He provided the results with titles as poetic as they were ironic.
