"I have always been drawn to what is ending, which will soon be gone.” Josef Koudelka Through one hundred and nine photographs, taken between 1962 and 1971, in Czechoslovakia (Bohemia, Moravia and Slovakia), Romania, Hungary, France and Spain, Josef Koudelka delivers the unique testimony of a disappeared world. Fascinated by the culture and history of the Gypsies, and seeking to capture the meaning of their life, he gives us portraits of humanity and deeply moving authenticity. His approach, neither documentary nor ethnographic, takes place in a deeply intimate setting, the result is a collection of images imbued with a strong symbolism, of a strange power.
