Josef Hnik, born 1946, is a native Prague. After graduating in art photography from FAMU, he started work as an advertising photographer, while pursuing his personal projects at the same time: he photographed nudes, portraits and still-life. Later, he opened an advertising agency and dedicated himself to making film advertisements.
