Miroslav Hucek (1934–2013) was renowned for his black-and-white photography characterised by a pronounced humanist approach. However, the showcase ‘Homes’ – which will be showing at the Leica Gallery Prague from 26 April to 16 June 2019 – presents a different facet of the Czech photographer’s oeuvre. Curated by his daughter, Barbara Hucek, the exhibition comprises works that focus not so much on people themselves, but on the immediate surroundings that may have shaped them, and vice versa.
The viewer is taken into the homes of famous personalities such as Bohumil Hrabal, Ernest Hemingway, Michael de Montaigne, Axel Munthe, L. N. Tolstoy, Lenin and Napoleon, as well as the staged environments of fictitious figures such as Sherlock Holmes.
