Jaromír Funke: Between Construction and Emotion

Edited with text by Antonin Dufek.

"Nude" (1939) is reproduced from <I>Jaromír Funke: Between Construction and Emotion</I>.This is the first substantial monograph to examine the photography of Jaromír Funke (1896-1945), an innovator of modernist photography, comparable to contemporaries such as Jaroslav Rössler, Man Ray, László Moholy-Nagy, Albery Renger-Patzsch, Aleksander Rodchenko, Paul Strand and Edward Weston. Funke initially worked within abstract photography, but eventually he invented his own genre called "photogenism"; in the 1920s, he was one of the first to embrace Surrealist innovations in photography. Also aligned with the Bauhaus, Funke was additionally influenced by Cubism, New Objectivity and Constructivism. In the second half of the 1930s, Funke established what he called "emotional photography," based on theories and writings by Surrealist André Breton. Made in cooperation with Funke's daughter, this book focuses primarily on the ideas that shaped and transformed Funke's work, while placing it within the context of European avant-garde photography and culture.

Jaromír Funke: Between Construction and Emotion

Jaromír Funke: Between Construction and Emotion

"If I have many beautiful objects, and I know them, and enjoy looking at them, why would I not play lovingly with them, arrange them so that they are united by light, diversity, the special quality of line, and then capture them? The same objects, say, in a number of arrangements, again and again. This is how I show the viewer that they are my objects and how much I like them. I show them as wholes and also together with their details, which I further emphasize with the play of light." Featured image, from the Glass and Reflection series (1929), is reproduced from Jaromír Funke: Between Construction and Emotion, Kant's beautiful and enlightening new monograph on the modernist Czech photographer. continue to blog
