Prague: Kant, 2018.
Published on the occasion of the legendary Czech photographer's eightieth birthday, Josef Koudelka: Returning offers a comprehensive look at Koudelka's life and work, featuring all of the series for which he has become so well known, among them Beginnings, Experiments, Theatre, Gypsies, Invasion 68, Exiles and Panorama. Besides Koudelka's photographs, many of which have become canonical works of postwar photography, the book is notable for its inclusion of unique archival material, such as excerpts from his diaries, contact prints, examples of book or magazine mockups from 1969 in preparation for the Invasion 68 series, and photographs of friends, as well as other images from his personal life. The book was conceived and edited by Koudelka himself, making this volume an exceptional publication. Item #19710
