About Book
Josef Koudelka is one of the most critically successful documentary photographers of our time and a key figure among the Magnum group. Chaos features the best of his panoramic photographs, shot over the last twelve years, which wrench a powerful and beautiful visual order out of chaos and dereliction.
About Author
Josef Koudelka was born in Moravia, Czechoslovakia in 1938. He sprang to fame for his photographs of the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, finding asylum in Wales in 1970. Moving later to a small room in the attic of Magnum's Paris office, and becoming a member of Magnum, he has declined all the opportunities for commercial success to live as a nomadic traveller. He wandered with the gypsies throughout East Europe for years to produce Gypsies in 1975, (regarded by many as one of the greatest photography books of the last 50 years). This was followed up with another important work, Exiles, in 1986 establishing firmly his reputation as "the most potent and powerful photographer alive today" (The Times, London). Cornell Capa, founder of the International Center of Photography, sums up the career and approach of Koudelka: "His unsentimental, stark, brooding imagery reflects his spirit, the very essence of an exile who is at home wherever his wandering body finds haven in the night..." Koudelka's many one man shows include exhibitions at MOMA New York and the Hayward Gallery, London. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
