In the 1940s – 1960s, many Czech photographers chose to leave the country, either of their own will, or they were expelled. They emigrated to the West or even overseas, and the waters closed over some of them, so to speak. Josef Sudek acted differently (1896 Kolín nad Labem – 1976 Prague), choosing to live in internal exile instead. Among the places of refuge, which he resorted to from his modest studio, were the islands on the Vltava River. Deserted places in the very heart of Prague, veiled in dusk or misty fog, were subjects of his melancholic images. The display is supplemented by two photographs mounted by the artist himself.
