Josef Koudelka started using a camera in panoramic format in 1986 while participating in the photographic mission of the DATAR, whose objective was to “represent the French landscape of the 1980s”.

by Robert Capa R
John Steinbeck once wrote that his friend Robert Capa knew that “you cannot photograph war, because it is largely an emotion.” However, continued Steinbeck, "he did photograph that emotion by shooting beside it. He could show the horror of a whole people in the face of a child."

In 1968, Josef Koudelka was a 30-year-old acclaimed theatre photographer who had never made pictures of a news event. That all changed on the night of August 21, when Warsaw Pact tanks invaded the city of Prague, ending the short-lived political liberalization in Czechoslovakia that came to be known as Prague Spring.

by Herbert List
This selection of 120 works sheds some light on the elusive oeuvre of the German photographer Herbert List, and explores why it is so difficult to categorize his work. He would work in almost every genre that photography has to offer: architecture, still life, street photography, portraiture, documentation and cataloguing.
