Fereshteh – A Portrait Session in Prague

ShareShare on Facebook0

After spending time on work projects in Sweden and Paris, Fereshteh met me in Prague for her portrait session. She lives in Alabama, in the United States, where she is a scenic and lighting designer at Auburn University. Her design for Matrix II was chosen to be one of a very few designs included in the National Exhibition of Prague Quadrennial 2015. The Prague Quadrennial, or “PQ” is a theatre event–the largest scenography event in the world.
We chose Strelecky Island on the River Vltava for Fereshteh’s portrait session.

There is a lovely restaurant and cafe on the island, so of course we stopped for a coffee break.

The Most Legii, or Legion Bridge, crosses the River Vltava from the National Theatre to Strelecky Ostrov. It’s made of granite and its architectural details combine neo-Baroque and Art Nouveau styles. From here, there is a nice view of the Charles Bridge, which connects the areas of Lesser Town and Old Town.
