Asked to photograph during the filming of "Following Ulysses' Gaze," a film by Greek filmmaker Theo Angelopoulos, Koudelka immediately agreed. Wandering through the Balkans is at the heart of this film, which is similar in spirit to Koudelka's photographic history. This richly printed catalogue is more substantial than the Japanese catalogue published the same year under the film's title. An uncommon signed copy.
