Josef Sudek

A Czech photographer who lived through both world wars, Sudek lost his arm in the first of them and, receiving a disability pension was able to pursue photography.  His work is so involved with light and with simple forms and subjects.  Many of these are eggs, jugs, glasses, bread, leaves, etc.  he invested them with an amazing elegance with his use and understanding of lambent light


  1. I never heard of Josef Sudek but he is amazingly talented. Beautiful photography.

  2. I am glad you enjoy this, Nadege!
