The catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition Josef Sudek: Topography of Ruins, held at the House of Photography – Prague City Gallery, from 22 May until 19 August 2018. In 1945, photographer Josef Sudek went to the streets of Prague to document the damage done by the Second World War. This gave rise to a collection of nearly four hundred images that depict injured urban landscapes – damaged buildings, warehouses of installed statues, and protective fire and anti-aircraft measures.
