September 2015 has marked ten years since the untimely death of the famous Czech photographer Stanislav Tůma (1950-2005), whose extensive archive has remained, revealing many known and unknown positions of this sensitve observer of the world around him. The publication “A Different View“ presents a multitude of lesser known works created by Stanislav Tůma - urban still-lifes, corners encountered in interior and exterior spaces, as well as minimalist body still-lifes, sensitively composed - their quiet philosophy close to the that of the classics of Czech photography, whom Tůma respected, and sought to build upon rather than to oppose.
Czech Photography of the 20th Century, published simultaneously in Czech and English versions, is the first book to present the main trends, figures, and works of Czech photography from the beginning to the end of the last century to such a large extent. Its 517 plates include not only the most important, well-known photographs and photomontages, but also works that have long been forgotten or are published for the first time. The book is arranged in seventeen chapters, supplemented with chronologies of the most important events in twentieth-century Czech photography and history.
