Czech term or phrase: sočný
Ano, zachytit jevy, které se nabízely, zvnitřku – to bylo úsilí LK, úsilí, které v kompozicích z alžírské Sahary či z Kabylie dostává pojednou sočnou definitivnost
??
If it helps, the previous sentence is "A do té jsem chtěla vniknout, zachytit jí nikoliv zvnějšku, nezúčastněným pohledem náhodného diváka, ale zvnitřku, aby tato skutečnost existovala v mých fotografiích dál."
