On the Block: Czech Master Jaromir Funke's <i>Fotografie</i>On the Block: Czech Master Jaromir Funke's Fotografie
The thoughtfully sequenced gravure images show Funke's range and mastery, and are printed one to a page or double-page spread. His finest realistic work has elements of the New Objectivity, Functionalist, and Surrealist aesthetics, and his abstract images that played with light and form were among the best of their time.
