JOSEF SUDEK

Called The Poet of Prague, this shy, one armed-pho­tog­ra­pher was given a cam­era af­ter the loss of his limb in the First World War. He pro­duced some of the most haunt­ing images of the gar­dens, parks, and streets of his beloved city — though of­ten de­void of peo­ple. Sudek’s images — some fa­mously shot through the win­dow of his stu­dio — are melan­cholic and ro­man­tic in com­po­si­tion, painterly in ap­pear­ance, and re­flect his ex­pe­ri­ence be­fore and af­ter the war. The In­ti­mate World of Josef Sudek at the Na­tional Gallery of Canada is the first ma­jor show to ex­am­ine the pho­tog­ra­pher’s life and work dur­ing this pe­riod.
