Koudelka: Gypsies

Text by Will Guy.

Featured image is from <a href="http://www.artbook.com/9781597111775.html">Koudelka: Gypsies</a>.Aperture's new edition of Koudelka: Gypsies rekindles the energy and astonishment of this foundational body of work by master photographer Josef Koudelka (born 1938). Lavishly printed in a unique quadratone mix by artisanal printer Gerhard Steidl, it offers an expanded look at Cikáni (Czech for "gypsies" )--109 photographs of Roma society taken between 1962 and 1971 in then-Czechoslovakia (Bohemia, Moravia and Slovakia), Romania, Hungary, France and Spain. The design and edit for this volume revisits the artist's original intention for the work, and is based on a maquette originally prepared in 1968 by Koudelka and graphic designer Milan Kopriva. Koudelka intended to publish the work in Prague, but was forced to flee Czechoslovakia, landing eventually in Paris. In 1975, Robert Delpire, Aperture and Koudelka collaborated to publish Gitans, la fin du voyage (Gypsies, in the English-language edition), a selection of 60 photographs taken in various Roma settlements around East Slovakia. Gypsies includes more than 30 never-before-published images.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

The Guardian

Sean O'Hagan

Koudelka brings to life the even older world of the Roma gypsies that he encountered in his travels in the late 1960s and early 1970s in images that resonate with mystery and ritual, romance and hardship.

Koudelka: Gypsies

FROM THE BOOK
"This book is a revised and enlarged version of the original, final maquette for Cikani, Czech for Gypsies prepared by Josef Koudelka with the graphic designer Milan Kopriva, in 1968, and intended for publication in Prague in 1970. Koudelka left Czechoslovakia in 1970 and the book was never published.
In Paris, Koudelka started to work with the French publisher, Robert Delpire, on a different book of Gypsy photographs, which was comprised of 60 photographs mostly taken in separate Roma settlements in East Slovakia from 1962 to 1968. It was published by Delpire Editeur in 1975 under the title Gitans, la fin du voyage and by Aperture in the United States as Gypsies--with a special edition for The Museum of Modern Art. It remains a seminal book of the twentieth century.
This new extended version consists of 109 photographs taken in what was, at the time, Czechoslovakia (Bohemia, Moravia, and Slovakia), Romania, Hungary, France, and Spain between 1962 and 1971. The word Gypsies (commonly used when the photographs were taken, before the term Roma was established) remains the book title."
