In the 1980s, Hostinné – a town in the Krkonoše foothills – became an important venue for many Czech artists. The photographer Ota Hájek (1932 Pardubice – 1996 Hostinné) was one of the organizers of local cultural events. He started as a photographer in the 1950s, when he befriended Jiří Toman. In later years in Hostinné, he continued his documentary work in collaboration with visiting artists to the Ancient Art Gallery. Frequently remembered is his friendship with Adriena Šimotová, as well as with architect Alena Šrámková, sculptor Jiří Seifert, photographer Bohdan Holomíček and the interpreter of Hájek’s oeuvre, Jaromír Zemina. Besides photography and the fine arts, Ota Hájek had a lifelong passion for jazz music.
