Jakub, 21, is from Kosice, the second largest city in the eastern part of Slovakia. I was introduced to him through a close friend, Patrik, who came to visit me throughout the summer. Jakub is usually a bartender or a cook, and he doesn’t devote as much time to sports as do most of the guys I have photographed. The whole idea of being photographed was new to him and he was feeling very awkward at first. I did my best to make him feel comfortable and eventually he was smiling and felt relaxed. Jakub spent several days in my condo during the remaining days of Patrik’s summer visit. Jakub even cooked for us a few times and it was a very pleasant way for me to spend the last summer days in 2018. We are still in touch.
