The photography exhibition Life As I Know It documents the daily existence of Czech Roma families, particularly in their home environment. Photographer Talitha Brauer established a close relationship with the families while volunteering with at-risk teenagers at the Teen Challenge Center for Children and Youth. She began work on Life As I Know It in late 2011, and spent time with families in Prague, Brno and Šluknov to learn about their lives, discrimination they are facing and their dreams for the future. The result is a series of intimate every day moments, shot mainly on film, in both black-and-white and colour. Alongside the portraits are interviews with the subjects, compiled by Brauer during the project.

Talitha Brauer, 28, was born in the USA and grew up in Ireland and Germany. She trained in photography and literature in Michigan. She has worked widely as a photojournalist and fine art photographer. She has been living in Prague for 3.5 years. Her recent work tells the stories of marginalized people, and looks for unexpected beauty in ordinary places. The exhibition is held as a part of the Forum 2000 Conference “Media and Democracy” (21-23 October 2012).
