JOSEF SUDEK (Lots 78 - 91)“If you take photography seriously you must also get interested in another art form. For me it is music. This listening to music shows up in my work like a reflection in a mirror. I relax and the world looks less unpleasant, and I can see that all around there is beauty, such as music.” (Josef Sudek) (Please refer to the sale catalogue for the full version of the essay).
