Milan Svanderlik was born in 1948, in Northern Bohemia, and was educated partly in the former states of Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia and partly in the UK.   He has lived and worked in Croatia, in Switzerland and for over 45 years in London.   A vetaran observer of of the extraordinary diversity and beauty of nature, people, and life in general, Milan studied Botany abroad and Photography in London - combining both these interests, he has in the past exhibited plant photography in London's Photographers' Gallery.   In addition to portraiture and plant studies, Milan's photographic work encompasses travel photography, landscapes, still life and photo-reportage. As a UK civil servant, Milan worked as a photographer at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, where he later became Head of Media Resources, with responsibility for graphic design, photography and publishing.

One of Milan's major artistic endevours, 100 Faces of London, comprised portraits of 100 Londoners, celebrationg the extraordinary diversity of people who live and work in the capital.   This highly sucessfull project culminated in a five-week solo exhibition of all 100 portraits at the Gallery in the Crypt, St. Martin-in-the-Fields, in the run-up to the 2012 Olympics.   Seen by several thousands of Londoners and tourists alike, the exhibition was well received.

This project can still be seen online at:

100 Faces of London

Outsiders in London, Are you one, too? was Milan's last solo exhibition, also held at The Gallery in the Crypt, in 2015.   During the show's seven weeks, the work was seen by over 8,000 visitors.   With strong links to its predecessor, it too emphasized the extraordinary diversity amongst Londoners, this time with much more background about the sitters and a more explicit socio-political slant.

Outsiders in London

Milan continues to be active in the field of photography and is hoping to mount further public, non-commercial exhibitions of his images, both work with a distinct socio-political dimension and work that simply celebrate aspects of the extraordinary lives of London folk.




Milan undertakes commissions for photographic portraits and also sells limited edition prints of his studies of plants, still life and landsape.

THE EDITOR

Gerald Stuart Burnett

Gerald Stuart Burnett BA(Hons) MPhil FRSPH was born a long time ago to émigré Scottish parents in a small Cheshire market town. Educated at Sandbach School, he patriotically graduated from the University of Stirling, before undertaking postgraduate studies at the University of Nottingham. Following a long, journeyman career in the Education Service, he concluded his full-time employment in a senior post at one of London’s larger FE colleges.  Despite having spent much of his working life ‘writing’ for one purpose or another, he has in recent years undertaken what is primarily an editing role. Following transcription of the interviews conducted by Milan Svanderlik, he has painstakingly reworked the text of each ‘story’ into its current form, endeavouring to ensure some overall conformity and coherence across the entire project.  Editorial supervision of all other written aspects of the project has also been his responsibility, so Gerald freely admits that any remaining imperfections must be down to him alone.
