The project is the third part of the literary trilogy (after Macha and Andersen, see http://www.vladimirkysela.com/en/2468-2/ ). It is dedicated to Antoine de Saint Exupery. Individual images represent Landscapes of the Mind, which Exupery put into his books. Exupery was a sensitive person, divided between his rich spiritual world, the world of pilots and the reality of the experiences of the Second World War and the emerging globalization.

I am a photographer of stories in the landscape and mind. I try to look at the world around me, and despite all its complexity, superficiality and speed, I present its beauty in an unusual, inventive way. I take pictures of joy, freedom, melancholy, sadness or fairy-tale, roughness, infinity… I am attracted by impressionism and positive image. I still feel strongly influenced by the painters who worked with light, color, shapes in the landscape, from Turner, through Monet to Van Gogh, to Šíma. Perhaps, one day, I approach them at least in sight .
