Profile

Born in Prague and having lived in Germany most of his adulthood, Jaroslav Poncar was professor of photography at Fachhochschule Köln (Cologne University of Applied Sciences) and retired in 2011. He specialized in panoramic photography (slit-scan). His work includes photographs of India, Tibet, the Himalayas, and Cambodia, where he made a complete photographic documentation of the bas-reliefs in Angkor Wat and the Bayon, for which he holds the world’s record of the largest negative ever produced. Afghanistan and Burma (Myanmar) are also amongst his most recently published works. Poncar is gradually making available some of his rare and unpublished photographs, some of them are seen included here with Serindia Gallery.
