Publisher's description: Like the previous volumes The Window of My Studio and Still Lifes, this new Josef Sudek monograph collects a series of photographs made within the confines of the Czech photographer's workspace. Sudek's studio famously verged on installation art, as the poet Jaroslav Seifert recalled: "Breton's surrealism would have come into its own there. A drawing by Jan Zrzavy lay rolled up by a bottle of nitric acid, which stood on a plate where there was a crust of bread and a piece of smoked meat with a bite taken out of it. And above this hung the wing of a Baroque angel with Sudek's beret hanging from it... This disorder was so picturesque, so immensely rich, that it almost came close to being a strange but highly subtle work of art." Gathered here in all their surreal beauty, the Labyrinths series depicts multilayered assemblages of objects in endlessly permutated combinations.
