It was great to see photographs by Jaromir Funke and the other photographers represented in this exhibition. Variety of the size and all B&W gave me an inspiration to be able to see things I can not. There were some impressive photographs out of his remarkable works such as “Roofs in Mala Strana”, “Childlike Scene”, and “Untitled, from the series Time Persists 1930 – 1933”, which showed me an example of how to see things in different angle, and crate a totally different meaning by taking a picture of two unrelated structures, a statue trying to put a circle material on the top of the a tall chimney.
There are photographs by others.

scene like some kind of inspiration or blessing from
