Despite a career that was curtailed at the age of 29, Vladimir Jindrich Bufka (1887–1916) was one of the most distinctive early-twentieth-century art photographers in Prague and indeed in all of Austria-Hungary. Bufka drew on contemporary artistic movements such Impressionism, Symbolism and Cubism for his pioneering prints using the demanding process of gum printing.
