Book Description 
Text by Vladimr Birgus. This is the most complete monograph to date on the influential Czech photographer Frantisek Drtikol (1883 -1961). Outlining many aspects of his life and work and including his often-neglected paintings and drawings, this book's main thrust, however, remains his photographic work. With over one hundred color and duotone reproductions, drawn from various public and private holdings, this collection displays many of his less well-known and unpublished images. Presenting examples from all of his creative periods, from secessionist and symbolist scenes to nudes considered shockingly modern for their time, these photographs are stunningly beautiful in their slightly veiled and grainy texture, and elucidate his considerable impact on pictorial photography. Vladimr Birgus' essay, apart from an in-depth analysis of Drtikol's photographs, places these images into a broader artistic and spiritual context, and is accompanied by reproductions of numerous historical works. With a selection of authentic quotations from Drtikol's personal correspondence and writings that expresses his religious and philosophical thoughts, as well as an exhibition list and bibliography, this volume is a comprehensive look at one of this century's original masters of photography.
