about this item

Pavel Dias’s work forms one of the touchstones of Czech journalistic and documentary photography. Working at a time when the stiffness of form and content called for by Soviet ideology was giving way to photography capturing people and real life, Dias was one of the main representatives in this country of classical humanist photography, an approach that characterises his work to this day. This overview of his work, containing nearly 180 documentary and art photographs, demonstrates how, despite the transformations going on around him, again and again Dias returns to his original humanistic motto: to explain humankind to itself, to see life in everything. Commentary text is presented in Czech and English, and this volume includes an interview with the author by renowned Czech journalist Karel Hvíždala.
