Alois Zych

Czech Republic (1874—1943)
After his studies at the Technical University in Prague, Zych started to work as a photographer and in 1908 he co-founded the Czech Amateur Photographers’ Club, for which he served as president and contributed to its magazine Photographic Horizons. He experimented with photography techniques and created his ‘acts’. He continued to work in photography, focussing on female nudes and later on landscapes.
