Only with the fall of the communist regime in 1989 and the end of Czechoslovakia’s cultural isolation did the world begin to appreciate Czech avant-garde photographers of the first half of the 20th century. In this sense, ‘Czech Photographic Avant-Garde, 1918-1948’ represents the first comprehensive survey of Czech avant-garde photography in the first half of the 20th century. It introduces the important work of František Drtikol, Jaromir Funke, Jaroslav Rössler, Jindøich Štyrský, Josef Sudek and numerous others, whose work has made Czech photography synonymous with visions of modernity. The essays introduce the period and explore the background and connections between the photographers, whose biographical profiles are also included.
