AGO, anonymous gift, 2000.

An installation of 13 photographs by Josef Sudek (Czech 1896-1976) that demonstrate how Sudek intermittently embraced aspects that appealed to the notions of dream and the irrational. The remarkable photographs of Sudek invariably lead one to the realm of the enigmatic - even when he explored the streets of Prague, its sites, and the leisure time of its inhabitants, his images evoke dreams and mysteries. Sudek created a poignant world of lights and shadows in which his personal themes and variations converged into poetic cycles. Organized by the AGO.

Exhibition on view in the Joan & Jerry Lozinski Gallery.
