A close look at the legendary Magnum photographer Josef Koudelka’s past, memories, thoughts about photography, his stance on life, and his emotional journey through ‘Ruins’, his last project, which is about the archeological ruins of ancient cities in Mediterranean regions.
Following the footsteps of Heraclitus over his quote that “no man ever step in the same river” Josef Koudelka revisits more than 200 Hellenistic and Roman ancient cities he photographed repeatedly over the past 26 years. During this epic journey to Mediterranean regions, we witness the moments of joy, tenderness, and silence while focusing on Koudelka’s both artistic and philosophical search for the “maximum”.
