Fall at the Hunger Wall, 2015

 

Among the world's great cities--perhaps the best of them--Prague echoes the history of Europe, embraces its profound place in this narrative, and welcomes visitors as part of its character development.  For sure, Prague and its seat of empire, revolution, and diversity existed long before its picture was taken, but the camera—particularly in the hand of Josef Sudek and his devotees—has done as much to poeticize and elevate Prague as Dvořák, Kafka, Mucha, and history itself.  Cameras are more present in Prague than guidebooks because what there is to see is, perhaps, more alluring than what there is to do.  For me, photographing in Prague is a déjà vu of human consciousness, a sense of having seen and experienced this place together before even this first time.
