Slovak photographer Monika Klučiarová combines stunning Slovak folk dress (kroje) with adorable 10-day old babies to create spectacular portraits.

The artist perceives the Slovak folk kroje as mosaics consisting of many details that result in one priceless whole. In addition to the Slovak cultural heritage value, the kroje showcase incredible colors and geometric and other patterns that naturally lend themselves as objects of photographic art.

Lullaby: Babies in Slovak Folk Dress will include 36 large portraits. In addition, selections from The Baine/Cincebeaux Collection of Czech & Slovak Folk Dress and Folk Art will be displayed next to the portraits, giving visitors a view of authentic folk dress.
