Torst, Prague, 2006. 144 pp., 76 duotone illustrations, 6½x7".
An important study of the leading Czech avantgarde
photographer Eugen Wiskovsky (1888-1964).
Wiskovsky’s early New Objectivist works, from the
late 1920s and early 30s, sought artistic effect in
nonaesthetic objects: his inventive lighting and
cropping allowed their elementary lines to stand
out, to lose their worldly associations and take on
potential metaphorical meanings. In his dynamic
diagonal compositions, Wiskovsky was among the
most radical practitioners of Czech Constructivism.
