Franz Kafka is one of the well-known and famous persons coming from the Czech Republic round all the world. His literary works are considered as masterpieces of the literature and also influenced many authors and genres of the 20th century.  The project “Journeys of Franz K.” was founded by Czech photographer Jan Jindra, who invited me as a co-author. We wanted to destroy stereotypes about Kafka as a pessimist, who lived in Prague and had no other interest except writing. We did documentation about 70 places all around Europe, where he went on a holiday. He enjoyed a natural lifestyle, he was vegetarian. Kafka admired technology and innovations as aeroplanes and metro. The main result of our project is the exhibition, a book of photos and also lectures about Kafka. Our book Journeys of Franz Kafka was published by Czech publisher Academia in 2009.
