Essay by Antonin Dufek.
Published by Torst
A key Czech photographer of the second half of the 20th century, Ivo Precek was a key member of DOFO (1959-75), the now legendary group of photographers from the Olomouc region. DOFO's main aim, focusing on abstract and absurd photography, was in line with the Czech artistic stream of the 1960s, and Precek fit in by pursuing experimental techniques, including the photogram and photomontage. He also made three-dimensional objects and assemblages, and, in the 1970s and 80s, returned to unmanipulated photography. This long-overdue retrospective catalogue, following an exhibition at the Olomouc Museum of Art, covers more than 40 years of a career that extended or even anticipated photographic trends.
