Mesmerized Movement: The Subtle Handling of Light in Pavel Odvody’s Work
This recently published book documents the black and white photography by Pavel Odvody (*1953) which fuses sensibility, memory and fantasy in an original manner. His exploration of the psyche, beyond the body, is what gets under the observer’s skin. Moments of nakedness, staged in magical double exposures, wraithlike patterns or silhouettes of light, reveal the human being in their multifaceted manifestation.
Contributions by J. Hichi, C. Lunsford, P. Odvody Text: English / German
192 pages, 217 color illustrations
23,5 × 28 cm, hardcover
