Although he had no experience with photography (educated as a bookbinder) and was one-handed (due to amputation of one arm after he was wounded during WW I), he used large, plate cameras.
His early work included many series of light falling in the interior of St. Vitus cathedral. During and after World War II, Sudek created haunting nightscapes and panoramas of Prague - that’s why also known as the ’Poet of Prague’, and photographed the wooded landscape of Bohemia. And above all it was the famous The Window of My Atelier series; what influenced me the most (all images © Josef Sudek).
Sudek has taught me how to see and disclose beauty in the ordinary things.
