Street Scenes by Paul Ickovic

Share:

Bibliothèque Nationale de France presents works by Czech Leica photographer Paul Ickovic. Continues until August 22, 2021.

The exhibition ‘In Transit: Photographs by Paul Ickovic’ is currently open at the Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Paris. The showcase, which was organised in collaboration with the Robert Klein Gallery, encompasses street scenes and portraits captured from the 1960s onwards. Archive materials also illustrate the Czech-American photographer’s close connection with contemporaries such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Louis Faurer and Josef Koudelka.

The exhibition is accompanied by the monograph ‘Ickovic’, comprising a selection of 61 images.  

Born 1944 as Pavel Ickovic, the artist was thirteen when he emigrated with his family to the United States via Colombia. In 1962, he began to photograph and travelled to France, Denmark, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Yugoslavia, India, Nepal, and Hong Kong. A self-taught photographer, he came under the tutelage of Louis Faurer, before working as an assistant for Henri Cartier-Bresson.

Incidentally, photographs by Henri Cartier-Bresson are currently on display in a neighbouring gallery under the title ‘The Great Game’.
