Working in the classic style of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Brassai, Paul Ickovic's images are captive moments. Describing what he calls a "critical distance," Ickovic is close enough to his subject to be noticed but also maintains the eye of a voyeur. He records transitory moments that are never posed or altered. Ickovic tells much of his own story through the cities and people he photographs; a narrative with which the viewer can engage and relate.
This stunning 61 plate monograph is a retrospective of the work of Czech-American phographer Paul Ickovic. Printed by Trifolio in Italy, the striking images are printed in a way that reminds one of early 20th century photogravures.
