In The New Vision for the New Architecture author and art historian Jaroslav Andel presents the significant body of architectural photography produced in Czechoslovakia in the 1920s and 1930s. In this period, both architects and photographers saw themselves as participants in the creation of a new world, pursuing beliefs in social and technological utopias. Practitioners in the two fields shared and stimulated each other's vision, fostering interplay that consisted of mutual influences, parallels, and affinities. In all, the examples presented within The New Vision demonstrate that interwar Czechoslovakia was a leading European influence in the modern movement of architecture and photography.
