The Czech Republic has long been a land of mystery and magic, home to alchemists, artists, and the original bohemians, all of them weavers of spells, creators of fantastic worlds of the imagination. For over four decades internationally famous Czech photographer Jan Saudek has created a parallel photographic universe, a two-dimensional home full of longing, peopled with the most extraordinary characters. In his famous nudes, Saudek shows a distinctively different projection of beauty; real people in tableaux vivants that remind us of everything from surreal early movies to fin-de-siecle carnival nights. They exist outside time, a uniquely coloured and almost mythical theater of dreams.
