The Visual Story
He rushed in, his hair flying in the wind the hippie style, with a backpack big enough to take himself in – that‘s how our first appointment started off. His eyeballs behind the rims were flitting absent-mindedly as he opened the floodgates of frantic speech, and he won me over right away. With much amusement I had to admit that he spoke even faster than me (and you can bet I had raised the bar pretty high!) Petr Jan Juračka confronts each of his mad and wonderful projects head on, with fervor and enthusiasm reminding me of my own. I am looking forward to our cooperation and can’t wait to see his photos and videos.
