This series concentrate on the atmosphere of the normally invisible animate inanimate world of puppeteers.
I have always loved to look behinds things, to discover the magic of secret places. I have wanted to see even the invisible. That is why the world of puppeteers brings me so much excitement. This world is hidden from the audience. Puppeteers do so much work, but pretend they don’t exist, that their existence is proved only by puppets. In this series I concentrate on the atmosphere of the normally invisible animate inanimate world that is full of passion, love for details, puppets with soul, precision, patience, illusions, sharp relationships of darkness and light, dedicated hands and breathing strings. Photographs were shot at the atelier of Buchty & Loutky in Prague during shooting of an animated story about normalization in Czechoslovakia for organisation Jeden svet na skolach (One World at Schools).
