Publisher's Description
After studying at the Academy of Arts in Prague, and working—at some risk—as an abstract painter in Communist Czechoslovakia, Miroslav Tichy turned to a life of isolation in his home town of Kyjov, Moravia. In the 1960s, he began to take photographs of local women at the town pool using cameras he made by hand out of scrap and peering through the fence, which imposed its lines on every image. This collection is among the most touching contributions ever made to Western art’s gallery of bathers.
