josef sudek

I have come across Josef Sudek's series entitled A Walk in the Garden of the Lady Sculptor.

An installation of 13 photographs by Josef Sudek (Czech 1896-1976) that demonstrate how Sudek intermittently embraced aspects that appealed to the notions of dream and the irrational. The remarkable photographs of Sudek invariably lead one to the realm of the enigmatic - even when he explored the streets of Prague, its sites, and the leisure time of its inhabitants, his images evoke dreams and mysteries. Sudek created a poignant world of lights and shadows in which his personal themes and variations converged into poetic cycles. Organized by the AGO. 

I need to reflect and look into his work further. I am drawn to its abstraction and how his images evoke dreams and mysteries.


Thinking about titles and themes to explore for my MFA photography project. I like the idea of "Internal Gaze" and how it could relate to highway hypnosis, isolation, dreams, etc. I'm also reading up on Prairie madness.

This idea of spaces without people continues to fascinate me. Is this something that has influenced me because I live in a place of the world that feels very isolating??
