Event Description

The first UK exhibition of the work of leading Czech photographer Dagmar Hochová (1926 – 2012) known for her humanist and documentary approach. It features more than thirty of Hochová's powerful black and white images of ordinary people from the 1950s to the 1980s and unique images documenting the crucial events of recent Czech history, including the 1968 Prague Spring, whose 50th anniversary is commemorated this year, and the 1989 Velvet Revolution, building a complex picture of life in Czechoslovakia under communism.
