Miroslav Tichy // Piège pour un voyeur,
Galerie Christophe Gaillard

The naturalistic street photography of Miroslav Tichý, the subject of a major retrospective at the Centre Pompidou in 2008, was uncovered in the 1980s to the great interest of photography historians. Tichý’s voyeuristic gaze captured women out and about in the parks and streets of his hometown of Kyjov, Czechoslovakia. His photographs are often imperfect, blurred or damaged by over-exposure, adding to their improvisational quality and analog aesthetic. He is known for working with DIY equipment, such as glass lenses stuck together with toothpaste.
