Exhibition of Czech pictorialist photography opens in Prague

An exhibition of Czech photographers who worked in the pictorialist style has begun at the Ateliér Josefa Sudka gallery in Prague. Among the artists represented are František Drtikol, Jaromír Funke, Jan Lauschmann, Drahomír Josef Růžička and Josef Sudek. Pictorialism, which was common in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, is a style in which the photographer manipulates a photograph in such a way as to create rather than simply record an image. The exhibition runs until August 30.
