Bohdan Holomícek is a rare phenomenon of Czech culture. He is a photographer of friendly get-togethers, capturing positive situations, moments of kindness, and flashes of love, with the magical contribution of light.--Anna Fárová
The now-legendary photographer Bohdan Holomícek—born in 1943—has traveled throughout the Czech Republic for several years, recording a never-ending series of moments. In doing this, however, he is not so much seeking to act as a documentarian or photojournalist as he is seeking to assemble countless ordinary moments into something extraordinary, something as large as—not larger than—life. In the figure of Holomícek a rare unity of life and art is achieved. He is a highly individual chronicler of more than thirty years of life in the Czech region, and the personal and transcendental stamp he puts into his work communicates itself across boundaries of nation and ethnicity. This retrospective look at Holomícek’s work contains beautiful reproductions of the artist’s duotone images and serves as a splendid introduction to his oeuvre.
