Jaromír Funke: Between Construction and Emotion

"If I have many beautiful objects, and I know them, and enjoy looking at them, why would I not play lovingly with them, arrange them so that they are united by light, diversity, the special quality of line, and then capture them? The same objects, say, in a number of arrangements, again and again. This is how I show the viewer that they are my objects and how much I like them. I show them as wholes and also together with their details, which I further emphasize with the play of light." Featured image, from the Glass and Reflection series (1929), is reproduced from Jaromír Funke: Between Construction and Emotion, Kant's beautiful and enlightening new monograph on the modernist Czech photographer.
