VILEM KRIZ: FOTOGRAFIE Z OBDOBI (1937-1992) - 1992 [1st Ed]
Vilem Kriz: Fotografie Z Obdobi 1937-1992
an exhibition of the Central Bohemian Gallery
A splendid celebration of the beautiful art of the surrealist Czech photographer Vilem Kriz (1921-1994). At once, one can simultaneously feel in these photographs--which present the urban world, intimate moments with people and situations, as well as country views or still lifes--a strong nationalist pride and love of Paris, where he lived during the city's darkest and most difficult years. Filled with striking images of cathedrals and their Gothic majesty, as well as pictures of country melancholy, this is not an account about travelling but the view of the world from a pilgrim and exile who never lost his love for the places that shaped him. Approx. 60 pages. 8.25 x 11.5 inches.
FIRST EDITION. Lavishly illustrated with over 50 black & white photographs of the exhibition. Text in Czech with English translation. Includes an introduction, explanatory note on Vilem Kriz's photography, a short biography and a list of publications, catalogs, etc.
