Photograph. 'Charles Bridge, Prague.' This 15th century bridge, originally named 'Prague Bridge' and 'Stone Bridge', crosses the Vltava river, connecting Prague Castle and the Old Town. It has been home to 30 statues since the 1700s, but, unbeknownst to most tourist who cross it, all the statues have now been replaced by replicas. @davidasutton @sketchbookexplorer Facebook.com/davidanthonysutton #b&w #photography #prague #travel #travelblog #charlesbridgeprague

Artist’s Prague

In 2015 I moved to the Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. A city steeped in history and culture, and endowed with architectural splendour. Since then, I have explored many of the city’s famous and hidden wonders, sketchbook in hand. I want to capture the heart of Prague, like the artist explorers of the past.

So, let me show you the historical capital of Bohemia, through my artwork. See Prague through the eyes of an artist.

Photograph. ‘Statue of Attila Jozsef, Hungarian Parliament Building, Budapest.’

Beside the parliament building sits Hungarian poet Attila Josef. Plagued in life by mental health issues, his statue seems to be finally at peace. @davidasutton @sketchbookexplorer Facebook.com/davidanthonysutton #b&w #photography #budapest #hungary #travel #travelblog #hungarytourism #parliamentofbudapest #attilajozsef
