Review 
  
"Sudek's photographs need no words. They are simply breathtaking."-Milos Forman 
  
 
  
"The master of Czechoslovak photography turned whatever his lens touched into poetic gold." -Andy Grundberg, The New York Times 
  
 
  
 
  
Ingram 
  
Here is the most comprehensive compilation of Josef Sudek's photographs, providing the rare opportunity to see for the first time the masterworks of one of photography's greatest artists.  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
In a career that spanned nearly seven decades, Josef Sudek, one of the masters of twentieth-century photography, created his own solitary world of shadow and light, of theme and variation. Exquisitely reproduced in tritone, the more than one hundred images in this monograph convey the spirit of Prague as well as the spirit of Sudek.  
  
 
  
The photographs are complemented with a text by Anna Farova, one of the foremost photography curators and writers in Eastern Europe and a longtime friend of Sudek's. She traces his life and work, beginning with the devastation of World War I, in which he lost an arm, through his development as a photographer and a central figure in Prague's artistic life. Sudek's passionate, impressionist images, as well as his penchant for exploration, earned him the affectionate title "Poet of Prague."
