From the publisher: "After studying at the Academy of Arts in Prague, Miroslav Tichy withdrew to a life of isolation in his hometown Kyjov. In the late 1950s he stopped painting and began during his daily walks to take photographs of women with cameras he made by hand. He mounted the prints on handmade frames and added finishing touches in pencil, thus shifting from photography to drawing. Disregarding the rules of photography Tichy has created over four decades a large oeuvre of poetic, dreamlike views of feminine beauty. Tichy's former neighbor Roman Buxbaum discovered Tichy's secret work in the 1980s and has been documenting and collecting it ever since, in 2004, Harald Szeemann presented the first solo exhibition of the nearly eighty-year-old artist in the Seville Biennial. That same year Tichy was given the Discovery Award at the Rencontres de la Photographie Festival in Arles and the Kunsthaus Zurich held a large retrospective. The Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Museum of Modern Art (Frankfurt) are holding solo exhibitions in 2008."
