Šumiac is a typical Central Slovakia village under the Low Tatras. It lies below Kráľová Hoľa Mountain, one of the informal national symbols in folk ballads and Romantic poetry. Portraits of people from Šumiac are amongst the most well-known pieces by Czech social photographer Markéta Luskáčová. She was inspired by old Christian rites and surviving traditions, focused on children and family elders, depicting their ties to each other and to the native land.
