The Living History of the Czech Republic
The mark of history is everywhere in the Czech Republic: in the Baroque architecture of Prague and Chesky Krumlov, a World Heritage site; in the beautiful Moldau River, winding through the countryside to the tempo of Smetana's symphonic poems; at Terezin, the camp that remembers Nazi occupation, and in the stark apartment blocks built by the Russians. The Czech Republic s a rich tapestry of memory and light.
One of my favorite spots is the Old Jewish Cemetery in Prague, not just because it lends itself to the most incredible, haunting Infrared images, but also because of the thousands of names etched into the walls within.
Each time I go, I not only find new places to capture with my lens, but I reconnect with a forgotten time, in oh so many ways.
