Antonín Kratochvíl: Testimonies

May 6 @ 10:00 am - September 30 @ 5:00 pm

Czech Centre’s Window Gallery & Czech Embassy London (outdoor exhibition)

Antonín Kratochvíl (b.1947) is a Czech photojournalist of international renown. After five years of exile in Europe (1967–1972), including life-changing experiences from his time in a refugee camp, in prison, and in the French Foreign Legion, he studied art and photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and moved to the United States in 1972, where he became one of the top photojournalists and war photographers. A turning point in his career came with his self-published book Broken Dream: Twenty Years of War in Eastern Europe (1997).

He has worked for prestigious American newspapers and magazines including Rolling Stone, New York Times Magazine, Newsweek, Mother Jones, Smithsonian, Condé Nast Travel, Geo, Playboy, Penthouse and Vogue. He has received many international awards including the Dorothy Lange Prize, the Ernst Haas Award, the Golden Light Award, the Gold Medal for Photography from the Society of Publishing Designers in New York, the Gold ARC Award for the Best Annual Report, the Lucie Award and World Press Photo of the Year. In 2014 he was named the Czech Photography Personality of the Year. 

This exhibition would not have been possible without the generous participation of Antonín Kratochvíl, the Czech Embassy in London and the Czech Embassy in Paris.
