Looking through old photographs of Prague, we stumbled across a Flickr album by a user named Mark Susina containing spectacular photos of Prague in the 50’s. The photographer of these photos is Marks father, who took the photos while being stationed in Prague in the army.
Mark says of the photos that a few of them were displayed around his home growing up, but others he found hidden away in a box. On the back of the photos his mother had written short descriptions such as “Old woman sweeping the street in Karlsbad” but others were left blank.
Mark decided to scan some of the better photographs to publish on his account, and result is absolutely stunning, we only wish we knew more about the photographer himself, if you do know anymore about these amazing, mysterious photographs of Prague let us know in the comments!
This interesting collection of photos captures not only personal moments of family, but also life in the city, emotions of strangers on the streets, architecture, and everyday habits and chores of life on the brink of war. They are rare and strangely beautiful for an amateur photographer.
He had a great eye for composition and you can definitely see a similar style throughout the series. All of the photos are monochrome and have a noir feel to them. Besides these few facts, there isn’t much we know about the photographer. But we wanted to share his breathtaking work regardless.
