In this interview with VII The Magazine, Antonin Kratochvil takes us on a very personal 20-year journey. He gives us a glimpse of what his eyes looked upon that is or may be gone forever. This is a story about loss; the physical loss of place, loss of freedom, historical loss, and the loss of our responsibility as human beings to care for each other and the world in which we live. Vanishing does not offer answers, neither is it a sermon in hopes of brighter days. It is Antonin's visual poem to the world we inhabit.
