Miroslav Tichý Bestseller

By Miroslav Tichý, Brian Wallis (Contributor) and Roman Buxbaum (Contributor)

The International Center of Photography is the first American museum exhibiting work on the reclusive and mysterious Czech photographer Miroslav Tichư. Now over eighty years old, Tichư is a stubbornly eccentric artist, known as much for his makeshift cardboard cameras as for his haunting and distorted images of women and landscapes, many of them taken surreptitiously. Tichư began photographing in the 1950s, in part as a political response to the social repressions of Czech communism. However, it is only in the past five years that his intensely private work has gained public attention. The exhibition and catalogue, organized by ICP Chief Curator Brian Wallis, includes a number of Tichư's homemade cameras as well as approximately 100 of his photographs.
