A photographic time warp

Another of my former students, Martin Tůma, is now the operations manager at a museum in Český Krumlov. The museum is dedicated to the photographer Josef Seidel, whose studio hasn't changed since the business was nationalised in the communist era. The studio, props, backdrops and 160,000 glass negatives remain as they were when Josef's son was forced to shut shop in the early 1950s. It's like being in a time warp. Adding to the effect is Martin's vintage moustache. Thanks for the tour Martin!
