This retrospective catalog features vintage prints as well as recent, unpublished work by internationally acclaimed photographer Josef Koudelka (b. 1938). A leading member of the photo agency Magnum, co-founded by his close friend Henri Cartier-Bresson, Koudelka has been a legend since the publication of his unforgettable eyewitness photographs taken during the invasion of Czechoslovakia by Soviet-led troops in 1968. In addition to Invasion and Exiles, Koudelka’s most ambitious project, Gypsies, is featured with the complete set of twenty-two prints first exhibited in 1967. Koudelka’s impressive imagery is accompanied here by five essays that provide a thorough understanding of and appreciation for this outstanding artist, willfully independent and reclusive despite his renown.
