Prague Periphery in Photography

The magic of Prague periphery from 60’s and 70’s of the last century is possible to admire at the picture exhibition called Disappearing Prague (mizející Praha) in Prague City Museum at Florenc. Some of the 122 black-and-white art photographs depict places that the time swept away; the wooden walls at Holesovice, where the citizens of Prague used to write and paint, the little boats at the Libensky island (Libeňský ostrov), the color of gas lamps and ancient tramways.

Reich was born in Dejvice, but his domain was the area of old Holesovice with the nearly-ruined houses, factories and riverside. There are cars and folks deliberately missing in these pictures – the life can only be felt, but not seen. For anyone interested in Prague in art photography, made by a devote artist, at this exhibition you can see the Prague that is no more.

You can enjoy the dissapeared Prague in photograpy until 11th November.
