Publisher's Description
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.
