Fireflies are for me the light in the dark. They show me the path to joy, hope, healing and connection with nature.Radim Schreiber
Growing up in the Czech Republic, Radim Schreiber hadn’t seen many fireflies. It was magical when he saw thousands of them after moving it Iowa. In 2003, his fascination became the inspiration to create a photo exhibit of the fireflies in their natural environment. It wasn’t until 2008 when advancements in low-light photography technology allowed him to realize his vision. Since then, he has spent his summers taking photos and video of fireflies. He has received awards and been published in numerous publications for his firefly photos. He has exhibited his images in the USA, London, Rio De Janeiro, Hungary and his native Czech Republic.
