"And what do you know about that?" asked him Hrbek.
"I found one. When I was in tight, she always up for me," Štreit said of his wife Agnes. He described what it was when their house commandos surrounded the secret policy, he was in custody and that the hardships with him his wife today, when he has too many activities.
The Jewish topics were Hrbek returned at the end of the show. "My mother was a Jew, but that religion was not at her dominant. I am a baptized Catholic, but I think, that no matter what religion, but what we are humans and how we can help each other. Sacral themes I worked in a cycle Gate of Hope, no matter whether its Buddhism or Shinto, if you are in Japan, or Siberia, the most important is humanity and be there for others, "said Streit.

Getting rid patterns
Jindřich Štreit also talked a lot about photography, about his subjects, pupils, a new cycle Where is my home, a new book-object, a box with photos of homeless people.

"And when you did first photos became Štreit?" Asked Hrbek.
"The first one. I photographed the funeral procession on the horizon, I squatted down a little and suddenly it comes out the other side a flock of ducks - I clicked. Since then I have not done anything better," said Štreit.
The speech was about the choice of subjects about missed opportunities and lessons from such situations. First we must think and then take pictures, told Streit. And the question from the audience then advised how to become famous. "The most important thing is work. Not to think about how and if it will have an effect. Todays students want to be famous, as quickly as possible and with the least effort, "he lamented. Such advice, let go to Prague or New York, where it will be easier to them. "Being famous for Sovinec, it requires a much greater effort," he said.
