Long called the Golden City, modern-day Prague stands as a shining jewel of Central and Eastern Europe. A link between post-Communist East and capitalist West, Prague is a city sitting on the cusp of regression and progress. This tension is mirrored in its people, those who cling to their past with the bitter vigor of a shot of Becherovka, and those whose hearts hold onto the hope of a better future.We Are The New Bohemians: The Post-Communist Collection tells the stories of these souls, finding them fearfully abandoned in hidden rooms and bleeding in back alleys. Finding them in the plain daylight of bustling streets and in the long shadows of the city, caught up in the alienation and uncertainty of a new way of life. Yet in the midst of this fear and loathing, these "Bohemians" are given the necessary grace to find their true selves as they struggle to rise above what they've been so meagerly apportioned by a world that often opposes second chances.
