Welcome to my new street photo-narrative “Tales of Czech Republic” (Summer 2021). On this trip, I was especially attracted by the warm facades of the buildings and houses. There are also plastic people, curious finds, and religious icons. In the form, I enjoyed myself once more with the saturated colors and reflections.
In this country, I explored Praha, Karlovy Vary, Kutna Hora (Sedlec Ossuary), Bohemian Switzerland, Kamenice Gorge, Karlštejn Castle, Cesky Krumlov, Sumava National Park, Holašovice, Ceske Budejovice, Tabor, Olomouc, Trebic, Telc, and Brno.
Sharing these tales, it’s like going back home, street photography was my first contact with art, and it has given me joy for years because I connect it to traveling, the most inspiring thing in life for me.
I also consider street photos my school, it’s where I learned how to see the world and how to show it. As I think about it and as every school, it opened me the doors to many other options and possibilities that I have been enjoying these last years so much.
