    Black and white photography its best.

    'Chaos' is the extraordinary result of two lives entirely dedicated to photography. The photographer's: Koudelka fled Czechoslovakia after taking the most striking photographs of the invasion of Prague in 1968. Since then in exile, a Magnum member since 1971, a recipient of numerous awards: his (deep) black and white panoramic photographs take you beyond reality to the questions and paradoxes of western civilization. Beauty and order re-established after the collapse of heavy industry, the desertification of city centers, war. Koudelka's images reach for the sublime but never forget to look down for its origins, to look ahead envisioning the final destination ...a somber, thoughtful experience. Second: Robert Delpire. Back in 1958 he published Robert Frank's 'The Americans' when noone would. As the first Director of the Centre National de la Photographie in Paris he created the famous Photopoche series now copied all over the world. The best combination possible in the best format possible served by excellent printing.

    One of our greatest living photographers

    Josef Koudelka's 'Chaos' is stark, poetic, and inspiring. The quality of Phaidon's printing enhances the experience of quietly sitting carefully examining one man's vision with a camera. Koudelka's sense of light, composition and subject will take your breath away.
