This photograph of my wife Libuse Brodova was taken in 1958 and made its way around the world.

It was an official photograph to promote an exhibition of archival documents that took place at the Prague Castle.

Although my wife had never worked with antique documents, because she worked at the archive, they picked her as an archivalist, to help them realize the photos.

The document that she has in front of her is probably connected to the Twenty-eight Czech Nobles, or something like that. She herself didn't understand what it was in front of her.
