Marie Šechtlová: The Photographs, 1960-1970.

Marie Šechtlová, nee Kokešová (1928 - 2008), entered the cultural scene when she was 20 by marrying into a renowned photographic family that had been systematically documenting life in Tábor from the end of the 19th century. She started her own artistic career towards the end of the 1950s.

The photographs in this latest exhibition were chosen to highlight what is considered the greatest breakthrough between photography and art; the connection between an instant snapshot and an overall artistic vision.

The exhibition runs until 7th November. Visit the website for more information.
