Josef Sudek

Untitled (1967).

A post at MetaFilter about Czech photographer Josef Sudek (1896–1976) led to these pictures. After linking to another post about Sudek five years ago I’d subsequently forgotten about him so it was good to be reminded of his work, not least for the views of Prague. Sudek is featured on this page with his contemporary, Karel Plicka, still my favourite of the photographers of that magical city.

    Sudek’s prints are exquisite; no jpeg can do them justice. I know, I am stating the obvious — for the benefit of some passers-by who may not know his work.
