After photographing theatrical productions in Prague and Roma settlement camps across Eastern Europe, Josef Koudelka (born 1938) risked his life and career to document the 1968 Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia. His images of the event, smuggled into the West and reproduced worldwide, forced his exile. This exhibition—the first U.S. retrospective devoted to Koudelka since 1988—presents more than 180 works produced over six decades by this legendary photographer, including early photographic experiments, vintageGypsiesbook prints and maquettes, and a selection of large-scale panoramas that he has made since 1986.
This exhibition was co-organized by the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Art Institute of Chicago.
