Leica Gallery, Prague
12 September - 2 November 2014
This retrospective comprises fifty years of work by Markéta Luskačová (b. 1944), an icon of Czech photography, whose importance has for many years extended well beyond the boundaries of her native land. Her photographs have more than just a documentary value; they also contain striking ethical messages. In her work, she has devoted herself to documenting religious pilgrimages in the countryside, life at street markets in London, and endangered minorities in Great Britain. As part of her more recent photographic projects from the Czech milieu, Markéta Luskačová has documented carnivals, mainly in Roztoky near Prague.
A catalogue has been published to accompany the exhibition.
