Almost every day the photographer Tomáš Princ walks the streets of
Prague and asks people he doesn‘t know: “Can I take your
photograph?” This book presents the most interesting stories from
his popular blog Humans of Prague from the past five years. The
author presents the residents of the capital city and its visitors
as thoughtful observers as well as witty commentators on their own
lives, as storytellers of funny as well as sad stories, as
self-confident protagonists, and as people who seem to be dwelling
in past events. He discovers people who remember the great moments
of last century as well as witnesses to fleeting moments in the
present. The book Humans of Prague is a unique mosaic which
reflects all of the colours in our lives: loss, disappointment and
unfulfilled wishes, but also dreams, desires and private victories.
With its architecture and history Prague is an exciting city, but
if you look past its beauty, you‘ll discover that its magical
attraction is created mainly by the people you meet there.
