From the mid 1920’s until his death in 1976, he photographed everything. Through this window of his studio, parks, streets, objects usually leaving the frame free of people.
He captured a more subjective experience of the city he was born. Sudek was a reclusive man, a large portion of his body of work was captured through his studio window; he was particularly fond of how the glass refracted light.
Working solely with bulk large format cameras, despite losing an arm in the first world war, he was a master of pigment and silver processes. Over his career, he created his own brand of romanticism within his photographs.
Jospef Sudek’s work and his isolation really resonates with me. His photographs are atmospheric and nostalgic.
