This was an unprecedented exploration which has not yet been completed – Koudelka keeps visiting archaeological sites in Greece, Turkey, Tunisia, Algeria, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon. As well as other Mediterranean countries. Searching not for the documents of the sites, but for the most perfect images of their existence.
About Josef Koudelka
Josef Koudelka (b. 1938) is a Czech born French itinerant photographer. Firstly, he is known for his seminal photo books about the gypsies in Eastern Europe, the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968. As well as the Black Triangle, a region of environmental devastation. Consequently, the black and white images in these photo books represent key moments in human history. Henceforth they afford us the opportunity to learn from the experiences of alienation, conflict, despair, waste, loss, and departure. Furthermore, he uses photography to distill and visualize human values that have shaped our current human condition.
