 Milan KAPUSTA

Born in Rožňava, Milan Kapusta graduated from the Secondary Technical School of Geology and Mining in Spišská Nová Ves. A mining engineer by profession, he switched to photography thanks to climbing. He started to climb in 1977 as a member of the Alpine Club in Spišská Nová Ves from where he moved later to the Alpine Club in Košice. Besides the High Tatra mountains (Slovakia), he has also climbed the Spitsbergen, Pamir Mountains, Yosemite, Alps, and other European mountain ranges.

Milan won a number of photography contests at regional, national and international levels. He is the laureate of the title Master of the Association of Slovak Photographers. He has exhibited in Slovakia and abroad. In 2001, he served President Schuster (1999 – 2004) as his official photographer during the President’s journey to the South American countries. Photography brought Milan to the Himalayas as well. Pope John Paul II received Milan’s panoramic photograph of the Tatra mountains as a gift.

Milan’s photographs have been used in many publications. The co-authors of the book Kras – Rožňava a okolie (The Karst – Rožňava and its Surroundings) were awarded the Prize of the City of Rožňava in 2001. Milan’s books Tatry (The Tatra Mountains) and Tatry a kvety (The Tatra Mountains and flowers) were published in 2005 and 2016 respectively.
