In a career that spanned nearly seven decades, Josef Sudek, one of the masters of twentieth-century photography, created his own solitary world of shadow and light, of theme and variation. The more than 100 images in this monograph convey the spirit of Prague as well as the spirit of Sudek.

Josef Sudek cofounded the Czech Photographic Society in 1924 with Jaromir Funke and took part in the International Photography Exhibition in Prague in 1936, along with László Moholy-Nagy, John Heartfield, Man Ray, and Alexander Rodchenko.
"Sudek's photographs need no words. They are simply breathtaking."-Milos Forman
"The master of Czechoslovak photography turned whatever his lens touched into poetic gold." -Andy Grundberg, The New York Times
"Sudek reveled in every aspect of photography, constantly experimenting with ways of seeing--form in the distorted reflection of a mirror; or condensation on a window, creating the perfect light diffuser; or a still life; or a view of laundry drying on the line outside." --Black & White Magazine
"The austere, moody black-and-white photos--which Sudek shot during a career that lasted for more than half a century--capture the formal eloquence and the ghostly, often surreal beauty of his native city." -- Francine Prose --Washington Post
