In this interview, photographer Antonin Kratochvil takes us on a very personal 20-year journey, showing photographs from his travels and assignments all over the world. He gives us a glimpse of what his eyes have seen that may now be gone forever. This is a story about loss; the physical loss of place, loss of freedom, historical loss, and the loss of our responsibility as human beings to care for each other and the world in which we live. His new photobook, Vanishing, does not offer answers, neither is it a sermon in hopes of brighter days. It is Antonin’s visual poem to the world we inhabit.
