A native of Žilina, Kollár took the photographs during a project organised by the Institute for Public Affairs think tank in Slovakia entitled Slovakia 2001: A Pictorial Report on the State of the Country. The exhibited photos, selections from a year of travel across the country, offer a visual overview of Slovakia.

Kollár, who has been photographing the changes in Slovakia for many years, was recently awarded a prestigious grant from the Association 3P, a European organisation, which recognizes outstanding photographic projects.
