Photographer's Note

The old cemetery in Prague's Josefov dates from the 15th century. What's striking about the appearance of the cemetery is that it is so cramped: symptomatic of the restrictions on the life of people in the Jewish quarter and, as it were, even their afterlife. I also think of this place as a more intense version of the labyrinthine quality of the old city--not entirely unlike what Kafka might have alluded to when he wrote: "Prague. Religions become lost, like people." ("Prag. Die Religionen verlieren sich wie die Menschen.")
