Exiles. Photographs by Josef Koudelka. Prepared and designed by Robert Delpire. Essay by Czeslaw Milosz. Koudelka's follow-up to Gypsies is a study of the physical and spiritual state of exile, investigating the lives of people in that situation, for one reason or another. Koudelka's brilliant photographs are nearly mythical in their portrayal of what John Szarkowski calls "the prototypical rituals." Nobel Prize-winning author Czeslaw Milosz contributes a stirring text, speaking vividly to the soul in search of a spiritual homeland.

From Library Journal:

In these black-and-white photographs, Koudelka looks at incongruous images, things laying about on sidewalks, and people in grainy and stark surroundings. These images are underpinned by Koudelka's stark composition and the graininess of the photographs themselves. The photographs are beautiful, not because they present pretty images, but because they reveal the realities and oddities of life. Nobel prize-winning poet Milosz contributes an essay on the meaning of exile that is thoughtful but doesn't add to the photographs, which need no words. A good choice for photography collections.
