Tono Stano (*1960) is currently known for his black-and-white portraits and compositions mainly of the female body. He created a series of large-scale photographic cycles, such as the large-format "Polaroids", the "Fascination" images from the natural world, the capture of a drawing of the contours of light and darkness on the human body called "Inside Out", the "Konvex" cycle in which he worked with the optical effect of decomposition reality and many more. He often returns to conceptual photography, for example in the form of negative-positive portraits, and is always looking for new photographic processes and overlaps. He is interested in all forms of artistic expression. He has been cooperating for a long time with the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, for which he created an extensive series of world-class film personalities and also designed the main award, the Crystal Globe (2001). His work is part of the collections of the Art Institute Chicago, the Bibliothèque National in Paris, the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris, the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television in Bradford, the Moravian Gallery in Brno, the Slovak National Gallery in Bratislava or Museum of Arts and Crafts in Prague.
