About this title

Synopsis:

A collection of photographs by the Czech photographer, Josef Sudek, who in portraying Prague and its environs evokes a deep sense of humanity and a life rich in emotion. He imbues his subjects with a luminous, even surreal, life of their own. A contemporary of Edward Weston, Man Ray, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and Alexander Rodchenko, he founded the Czech Photographic Society in 1924 with Joromir Funke and while he embraced the ideal of the avant-garde, working in many of the successive styles that marked the development of Modernism, his photographs have a lyrical and impressionistic quality that earned him the title "poet of Prague".

About the Author:

Josef Sudek cofounded the Czech Photographic Society in 1924 with Jaromir Funke and took part in the International Photography Exhibition in Prague in 1936, along with László Moholy-Nagy, John Heartfield, Man Ray, and Alexander Rodchenko.
