Tichy at the International Center of Photography, New York
A sneak peek into the recluse world of the Czech photographer Miroslav Tichy, this exhibition shares small moments in everyday life caught by his homemade cameras. These moments capture women peeking into doorways, eating ice cream and sunbathing by the pool. During the 1960s and 70s, a time of public oppression in Tichy's homeland of Czechoslovakia, he found personal pleasure capturing his favorite subject. The blurry, imperfected photographs reveal a shade of grace and intrigue, inviting the observer to appreciate the female beauty of everyday. Tichy's secret archive of prints remained largely unknown until 2004. This is his first American exhibition.
Open through May 9th, 2010 at ICP, New York.
