Miroslav Tichy, the Original D.I.Y. photographer at the International Center of Photography
Looking forward to seeing the recently opened exhibition of the eccentric Czech photographer, Miroslav Tichy in his first American museum show at the International Center of Photography. Over 80 years old, he has gained international recognition only within the past 5 years for his voyeuristic photographs of women taken with a handmade camera made of cardboard and thread spools. The filthy and torn photographs were rescued by a neighbor after they'd been left to decay. Also on view, Twilight Visions: Surrealism, Photography, and Paris and Atget, Archivist of Paris.
