The Intimate World of Josef Sudek examines how Sudek's photographs reflect his relationship to the world around him, from intimate explorations of his studio interior and views through his window, to his expansive wanderings through the streets of Prague and its peripheries, as well as excursions into the surrounding countryside. Sudek's endless fascination with light and its absence led him to create some of the 20th century’s most haunting images of nature, monument, city street and objects. Featuring five essays, warm reminiscences by two friends and former assistants, and two technical notes, as well as more than 120 vibrant plates and dozens of illustrations, this catalogue offers a compelling view of Sudek's photographs and the rich artistic environment of Prague in the decades before and after the Second World War.
