Photography influenced her whole life. Her CV shows how photography surrounded her in various ways.
She worked in advertising agencies in Germany and Switzerland for more than 5 years, where Jana was mostly responsible for editing photos. After she moved to Prague, she founded the first mail-order company for Photographic equipment in the Czech republic. Shortly thereafter, she obtained Leica representation. Through this she met more and more renowned photographers and fell in love with their work.
In 2002 she founded Leica Gallery Prague (LGP) in the Prague Castle, and turned it into a non profit Organization. The gallery became the most visited Czech cultural institution for years.
