about this photo
When I found out that I would be photographing a book of interviews by Michal Oláh with Daniel Pastirčák, it immediately occurred to me that I had to photograph Daniel as he cut his head off every year. In my opinion, it is a beautiful metaphor, capturing the exposure of one's self in front of society, just as Daniel does in his sermons every week.
