Reader Referral: Miroslav Tichý



After seeing my Sally Gall spring (summer) fever post, Jonathan Bliss, whose Rooms blog might be the most spectacularly tasteful collection of photos I've seen pop onto my computer screen at one scroll, inquired whether I'd seen the works of Czech photographer Miroslav Tichý. Well, now I have and what a find. Born in '26 and jailed by the Commies, he spent his later years wandering the streets in rags shooting women with cameras he made from tin cans, childrens spectacle lenses and other junk he found on the street. Amazing.
