„I am honored to be the patron of the Fotograf Festival. I was at its foundation. The first year of the festival introduced a similar theme "the 1980s". After nine years, the festival returns to the same time period, but the topic is viewed from a different perspective. The Archeology of Euphoria brilliantly responds to what the distance from the era of the historical changes at the turn of the 1980s and 1990s has brought to us. What has remained and what has been subjected to the sobering process and yet relentless faith. It is important to see these changes from different angles and contexts, as this year's Fotograf Festival and Fotograf Magazine are doing. Thanks to the entire festival team.“

"A festival, to me, is generally an annoying form of presenting anything, and the exception to this rule is the Fotograf Festival, which has become an identifier of continual thinking about photography without defining ultimate boundaries."
“I like the selection of the time period: 1985–1995. Finally, the Velvet Revolution does not serve as the turning point.”
