Born in Czechoslovakia, graduate of FAMU (Academy of Film and Television Arts), Kabelik started his professional career as a motion picture director in Prague. As an antidote to his filmmaking activities, he soon embraced photography, quietly documenting a life under the communist regime. He left his homeland in 1981, living briefly in Austria and Switzerland before settling in Ontario. Kabelik continues his work on television documentaries, while teaching and building his photographic observations of Canada through collections of monochromatic prints. An early adopter of Piezography process, Kabelik works with both film and digital media, enlarging his stills on acid free mould-made paper. The final product, carbon pigment image transfer, is a pure photography with a touch of hand-made graphic print.
