For the past 12 years, Koudelka has made photographs using a panoramic format camera, exploring its formal possibilities with rigour and originality, and "Chaos" is the fulfilment of Koudelka's panoramic vision. "Paradoxically, the images in "Chaos" viciously expose the anarchy which man imposes on nature and on himself" writes Robert Delpire in his foreword, "beyond all controversy, they denounce the absurdity of a world turned into a scene of dereliction. Josef Koudelka recreates a dream space, an elsewhere beyond time, beyond location, within which he organizes the shapeless and the chaotic". "Chaos" is dramatic, provocative and beautiful. Koudelka's next publishing landmark, it will have a powerful impact within the art and photography world.
