The project is the third part of the literary trilogy (after Macha and Andersen, see ). 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 .
