Josef Sudek: The Legacy of a Deeper Vision

October 3, 2012 – April 7, 2013


Czech photographer Josef Sudek is regarded as one of the legendary photographers of the 20th century with a career that stretched over 60 years. His increasingly contemplative photographs transformed ordinary subjects by uniting his external observations with deeply felt sensibilities, creating a unique world of his own.

More than 175 photographs in this exhibition have been selected from Art Gallery of Ontario's collection, spanning Sudek's entire career.
