OTHELLO to lead this year’s Summer Shakespeare Festival
The PPF Group has acted as the general partner of the Summer Shakespeare Festival for seven consecutive years. The Group both provides financial backing and contributes original ideas and initiatives that support the project’s growth and development. In addition to the Festival, there will be another cultural event at the Prague Castle supported by PPF – the third annual Maximum Photography exhibition introducing Jan Lukas’s photography cycle New York – Pompeii. There will be 26 large-format photographs (13 pairs of B/W and colour prints) posted on special glass walls and exhibited in the Castle’s Southern Gardens throughout the summer. The project, unique in its kind and size, will once again give the public a chance to see a selected portion of PPF’s photography collection.
“Czech photographer Jan Lukas celebrated his 90th birthday last year and is justly considered a legend of documentary photography. The exhibition is our way to pay a tribute to him,” says PPF’s spokeswoman Dita Fuchsová.
