Miroslav Tichy: Form of Truth

Text by Gianfraco Sanguinetti

Featured image is reproduced from <a href="9788074370397.html">Miroslav Tichư: Forms of Truth</a>.Hounded by the Czech Communist regime in the 1960s, the controversial photographer Miroslav Tich? (born 1926) has today found acclaim for his photographs of women taken with homemade cameras. This handsomely produced Tich? monograph is unique among Tichy publications for two reasons: firstly because the photographs, drawn from private collections, are all previously unpublished; and secondly because it is conceived and authored by the Italian former Situationist Gianfranco Sanguinetti, who has likewise come into conflict with state authorities, having been deported from France and Italy several times for his work with Guy Debord. The bulk of the photographs in this volume are derived from Sanguinetti's Tich? collection, and are prefaced with a lengthy meditation on the photographer by Sanguinetti, who declares his admiration for Tich?'s personal and artistic disregard for social conventions, and the anti-modernist character of his methods and materials.

FROM THE BOOK
"Abstract pleasure does not exist. There only exists one kind of pleasure. It is born out of your imagination, in which it has its origin. And, as Stendhal would have said, it crystallizes into one experience or another. Each of Tichư's photographs is a witness to one of these fortunate experiences. Taking his camera, Tichư has gone on a 'hunt for happiness' and he has filled his hunting bag with these infinite moments of specific pleasure in which, thanks to photography, he has stopped time and thus prolonged the pleasure that the moment has given him. Each photograph speaks to us and communicates to us the joy of the man who created it. In this, his work is also autobiography because it never ceases speaking about him."

Gianfranco Sanguinetti, excerpted from Miroslav Tichư: Forms of Truth.
