Tomki Němec: Václav Havel

Tomki Němec is not only one of the leading Czech photographers, but he is also a man who was in the right place at the right time. In 1989, at the age of twenty-six, he became a personal photographer of Václav Havel, and he was with him in two periods for almost ten years.

His photographs of Václav Havel, the best Czech president in the entire history of the Czech Republic or Czechoslovakia since 1918 till today, are truly legendary. Not just because of the stunning visual theme of Vaclav Havel and the Velvet Revolution, but mainly because Tomki Nemec has a feel for the exact, right moment.



And so, photographs such as “Vaclav Havel reads through his inauguration speech in his study at his flat” or “Vaclav Havel is walking across the western point of the European continent” were created, along with the incredible photograph of Vaclav Havel getting swept away by waves at the sea.

We are happy to offer you artistic photographs by Tomki Němec with a 5% discount from the regular sale price.

The photos meet the gallery and collector's criteria and are signed by the author. The photograph is always accompanied by a "Certificate of Authenticity", signed by the author, including the title of the work, year, printing technology and in some cases a hologram with a unique number. The use of the hologram is tied to the type of photo paper used. If the photograph is from a numbered / limited series, the serial number of the photograph is added and it is also written on the certificate. 

Regarding adjustment - the question of how the photo would be framed - you`ll fine-tune this with the author if you decide to order a photo. 

The reason is that framing unnecessarily makes transportation to the USA more expensive.
