    Miroslav Tichı has died - 1926 to 2011

    I just learned about this guy today, when I received an email from the Yahoo! PhotoHistory group. I find his method of working & his images fascinating and so will you perhaps. Apparently he died yesterday, but the only obituaries so far are in Czech.

    Many here will undoubtedly not like his photographs or method, but I hope you'll agree that they're incredibly interesting and represent an entirely different idea of what photography is; especially when contrasted to our highly refined and "sophisticated" techniques that often result in work that lacks much true intrigue.

    At any rate, a fascinating figure.

    Here's some further reading...

    Found art indeed, the man and his work. He made his own analogue cameras and lenses. Indeed! Each aesthetic to his own.

    Thanks for sharing holmburgers.

    If you look at this:

    you will see that Tichy Ocean Foundation in Liechtenstein violates his copyright.

    Let him rest in peace.

    The Tichy Ocean Foundation tells a different story:

    http://www.tichyocean.com/ follow "Problems" top/right.

    I think his pictures are bad enough to have some chance to become "art" with a couple articles on some newspapers.

    Wow, I didn't read the "Problems" section... very interesting.

    A further element of intrigue... but agreed, he will rest in peace.

    It's true "outsider art" where the artists' personae, circumstances, and limitations are as important as the quality of their work.
