The title "Journeys" refers to Marketa Jirouskova's main source of inspiration: a journey itself as a long, arduous travel in search of nature's highlights, in the footsteps of earlier explorers or following her own paths. The exhibit presents images of exotic birds and iguanas on isolated islands in the Pacific Ocean, penguins and polar bears with iceberg backdrops in Antarctica and the North Pole, and the highest mountains on Earth in the Himalaya. Jirouskova creates a wonderland composed of pristine uninhabited undisturbed places, difficult to leave for its beauty and harmony, where human traces are still non-existent or minimal. Jirouskova traveled to those remote destinations to create us evocative, almost painting-like, intimate portraits of our natural world. She hopes to inspire her public with respect, appreciation and admiration of world's nature worth preserving.
