This retrospective exhibition of the Czech photographer Antonín Kratochvíl presents a cross-section of a highly expressive, suggestive photographic oeuvre by one of the world's most prominent and significant producers of social documentary photography and photojournalism on the nature of contemporary human society. He affects our emotions, upsets us, transforms images with sophisticated effects, and dispenses an exact dosage of the intended resonance of the labyrinth of the forms humanity and its averted faces. Kratochvíl's photographs accentuate images of deprivation, despair, alienation, pain, sadness and misery, as well as the arrogance of power and its consequences in various parts of the world. They present historical evidence of modern social and civilization problems of the world and military conflicts (Afghanistan, Bosnia, the Philippines, Haiti, Iraq, Rwanda, Zaire) and capture the tragedy of humanitarian and natural disasters or the escalated social problems of human society as such (epidemics, disappearing cultures, devastation of the landscape, the criminality of drug dealers, and an insight into the lives of contemporary 'golden youth' in Moscow)

Circus sideshow : Antonin Kratochvil by Antonin Kratochvil( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in Czech and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Created in 1973–74 and previously unpublished in English in its entirety, Circus Sideshow, by Czech-born American photojournalist Antonin Kratochvil (born 1947), offers an amazing pageant of tightrope walkers, jugglers, snake women, giants, dwarves, contortionists and fire eaters at a circus in Gibsonton, Florida, a small coastal town near Tampa. The town was then known as a winter vacation hotspot for circuses, a place to recharge before setting out on their spring and summer cross-country tours. Visiting the mobile homes, caravans and trailers of the performers, and walking through their narrow alleys and circus tents, Kratochvil was able to photograph freely and intimately, and his black-and-white photographs testify to his vision of them as people expelled from society, but [who] were able to maintain their dignity. In 1974 he sent his photographs to the New York editorial office of American Photo, which the magazine’s art director, Jean-Jacques Naudet, printed as a ten-page report. Circus Sideshow documents an amazing lost American subculture."-- from publisher
