View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Few areas in the history of photography have received as little attention until now as Czech photography between the end of World War I and the beginning of the Communist regime in 1948. This is all the more astonishing because the country produced such a large number of photography groups and artists who translated the modernist vision of this era into a unique visual language. This large-format publication contains a collection of 173 major works by 39 photographers of the Czech avant garde in color. In addition to big names such as Frantisek Drtikol, Jaromir Funke, Jaroslav Rossler, Josef Sudek, and Anton Josef Treka, there are also lesser-known artists to discover. Including short biographies of all the featured photographers, Czech Vision is a reference work that provides an informative overview of the history of Czech avant-garde photography between the world wars.
