A collection of photographs by the Czech photographer, Josef Sudek, who in portraying Prague and its environs evokes a deep sense of humanity and a life rich in emotion. He imbues his subjects with a luminous, even surreal, life of their own. A contemporary of Edward Weston, Man Ray, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and Alexander Rodchenko, he founded the Czech Photographic Society in 1924 with Joromir Funke and while he embraced the ideal of the avant-garde, working in many of the successive styles that marked the development of Modernism, his photographs have a lyrical and impressionistic quality that earned him the title "poet of Prague".

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
