About this Item

Large quarto. [8]pp (text), 73 leaves (plates), [3]pp. Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over purple cloth with blind-stamped lettering on front cover. Published on the occasion of the travelling exhibition of the same name that was held in Europe and the United States from 1994 through 1996. "This volume presents a seminal aspect of the Czech photographer's oeuvre, which is now universally recognized as among the greatest photography ever undertaken by anyone in the 20th century. Josef Sudek remained in his native Czechoslovakia (now the Czech Republic) throughout his long and stupendous career, spiriting out prints of his work, many of them just single copies, to friends like Anna Fárová, so that his work will be in caring hands and not be forgotten. A reclusive man who shunned publicity, lived modestly, and remained loyal to his beloved country through thick and thin, Sudek's inner life was clearly the inexhaustible source of his work. Whether he did landscapes, street photographs, portraits, nudes, still lifes or inspired combinations thereof, Sudek left his indelible mark on the medium called the photograph. The Pigment Print process, which dates back to the earliest days of photography, is based on a complex (and tedious) technique. One of the enduring legacies of 19th-century photography, it is also called the Carbro Process, which Anna Fárová explains in layman's language in an Appendix" (from the publishers). This work focuses on the quality of his prints and contains the finest reproductions to date of his pigment prints. The 73 full-color illustrations capture the subtle tonalities and colors produced by this process, and reveal Sudek's printing mastery. Dust-jacket, binding and interior in fine condition.
