JOSEF SUDEK
[1896 - 1976] A Czech photographer, best known for his haunting night-scapes of Prague.

 
..everything around us, dead or alive, in the eyes of a crazy photographer mysteriously takes on many variations, so that a seemingly dead object comes to life through light or by its surroundings.... To capture some of this - I suppose that's lyricism. - Josef Sudek
I believe that photography loves banal objects, and I love the life of objects. - Josef Sudek
