Press Release

Howard Greenberg Gallery is pleased to present Behind the Curtain, an exhibition of work by Czech photographers, Miroslav Tichý and Josef Sudek.  While the style of their photographs vastly differs, each photographer created a solitary world in which he produced powerful, inimitable images. For Tichý, the streets of Kyjov became his studio; for Sudek the city of Prague and the view through his studio window served as the foundation for his creativity. The work of both artists evokes a strong sense of secrecy and ambiguity—the many faceted mysteries that were sealed behind the Iron Curtain for years.
