Railtracks is a collaboration between two writers of remarkable achievement. A meditation on railways, love and loss, at once intimate and committed, it moves from the industrial to the metaphysical, from the tectonic shifts of globalisation to the internal pulses of memory, and from the present to a past that still exists in vivid, essential traces. This sensual and exploratory dialogue is accompanied throughout by the photography of Tereza Stehlíková, which charts its own atmospheric journey by train through the winter landscapes of Southern Bohemia.
