Jan Saudek is the most famous living Czech photographer, and simultaneously the most provocative. For over four decades Saudek has created a parallel photographic universe, a two-dimensional home full of longing, peopled with the most extraordinary characters and colored by desire. The timeless strength of his hand-tinted photographs lies in their poetic compositions and their forceful pictorial language, with its overtones of medieval genre pictures and Baroque mythology.
