Jana Krenova
But it was time for Jana to return to the ultimate arena, and in 1989, she set down stakes in New York for good, working a series of staff art director jobs to pay the bills, growing her private photography business and buying a penthouse apartment in New York's artsy East Village. In 1997 she gave up the monthly paycheck to devote herself entirely to her true profession: photography. Today, Jana, who is fluent in English, French, German and Czech and can fake it in a few more, makes New York her home base, though a significant portion of her work is still done in Prague, where, she claims, the models are more beautiful and have a more natural sexiness, the locations are more exotic, and she has assembled the right team of assistants, including her indisposable make-up artist. When not working, or traveling, the warm and charming Jana is most likely to be found in her own kitchen, cooking a gourmet meal for friends or a date, enjoying a glass of Pilsner Urquell and listening to Miles Davis.
