Josef Koudelka

Episode 55 of 330 episodes

Josef Koudelka is one of the more important Czech photo journalists of the 20th Century. In August of 1968, he witnessed and photographed the Warsaw Pact invasion of Prague. For the next 7 days, Koudelka captured the protest, violence and historical impact in a series of dramatic photographs that shared the event with the world. For years, he went uncredited as the photographer of these images out of fear for his life. He even won the Robert Capa Gold Medal for the work anonymously. Interestingly this would be the only conflict news event that Koudelka would ever cover. In this video we'll take a look at Koudelka's career. His early work with the theater greatly influenced much of his later work including the Prague invasion, Gypsy studies and later landscape images. Koudlka is a brilliant photographer. For all of his talented he went largely uncredited for most of his career. http://theartofphotography.tv/episodes/josef-koudelka/ http://twitter.com/tedforbes http://pinterest.com/tedforbes ================ This show is sponsored by Lynda.com Learn what you want, when you want with access to thousands of downloadable, easy to follow video tutorials including many about photography.
