The photographs of Fedor Nemec are vibrant, but also meditative motives of women. There is a bit of tenderness of art nouveau, the elegance of the art deco style, but what prevails in them is defiant discomfort, provocation, Eros and also the emotive neurosis of the postmodernism. It is the old in the new, eternal in the variable, feminine in the feminine. In most of the cases these are photographic solos. A woman inside herself. A woman which got out of time and a woman into which time had got inside. Fullness changed into fertility and fertility into completeness. It is a woman waiting and carrying this sentence. It is a woman which is impatiently hoping in her destiny and also in the aggression of the body which fills the soul.
The distinctive composition of his photographs is his signature.
Pieces of art of Fedor Nemec are present not only in private collections of galeries and art collectors, but also with such personalities as Albert II., the Prince of Monaco, and Queen Eisabeth II…
