Marie Šechtlov: Photography 1960-1970 offers a rare look into the graphic yet humanistic vision of a Czechoslovakian woman photographer during a decade of political and social upheaval. This high-quality publication is a tribute to Šechtlová's lyrical approach, situated within the Czech avant-garde lineage, which creatively sidestepped the difficulties of expressing humanistic values under a repressive communist regime that imprisoned her husband for his photographic activities. Among her wide repertoire, All Eyes (1964), a joint effort with poet Jan Noha, establishes a balancing point between image and text by utilizing metaphoric, dramatic abstraction, unconventional perspective, and unusual use of focus, to communicate hopefulness for the future.
