Stories About Czechia

<em>Discarded Monuments, Tallinn, Estonia</em> (2015): “I found this location through a traveler’s blog. He had visited Tallinn’s History Museum and happened to wander around back, where he discovered all these statues just dumped there by the authorities. This is a good example of a place still in transition. I’ve seen photos of this location since I shot it in 2015, and the statues have been moved into more deliberate positions since then.”
