    Sudek:which book to get?

    Hi all,

    Been looking at Sudek's work online, wanted to get a book, wondering which people reccomend. I especially like his garden photos and dark still lifes, fwiw. Thanks,

    Poet or Prague is a great start.

    There are some wonderful books of his found on the European eBay if you don't mind no English editions.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    I just received a book of Sudek's pigment prints bought through the LF forum.

    It's great! But "Poet of Prague" is a good start.

    I have three books on Sudek, and I am waiting for two more to come.(the pigment prints, that Ole mentioned and "the poet of Prague")

    the three ones are named:
    Sudek - Josef Sudek and finally Sudek!....:rolleyes:

    one is by Sonja Bullaty (very good! great prints in this one)

    "Josef Sudek" by Zdenek kirschner (good one too, but the print quality is not as good as in the two other books)

    "Josef Sudek" by Anna Favrova (FANTASTIC! big one! lots and lots of prints in really good quality. not cheap, though....)

    So I'll have 5 in a little time. I like to have so many with this fantastic Photographer, as each book has prints, not showing in other books...

    ...and he is my favourite!

    Good luck - they can be found on ebay....

    Certainly get "Poet of Prague". I think it is the best monograph/biography book on Sudek. Luminous & magical.

    sudek is also a favorite of mine -- his fascination with earlier photographic techniques and visual sensibilities should qualify him as the patron saint of apug ..... one book that i really like is 'el silenci de les coses: josef sudek' (1998)..... it contains a range of his work done since 1940 (still lifes, garden series, panoramas, interiors of his deranged 'studio') ..... it has beautiful reproductions and an english translation of the text in the back, along with some of his quotes made over the years in different interviews ..... such as: "i have always only photographed what interested me, what made me love it" ..... i don't remember where i found it; possibly on ebay .... good hunting-- you can never have too many of his books!

    One of my favorite photographers.
    This one is expensive, but it wll worth the money you invest:
    Josef Sudek.
    Monograph.
    Photographs by Josef Sudek. Edited by Anna Fárová.
    Gina Kehayoff Verlag, Munich, 1998. 408 pp., 435 four-color reproductions, 10¼x13".
    This is a special part of his work:
    Sad Landscape.
    Text by Antonin Dufek. Photographs by Josef Sudek.
    Moravian Gallery, Prague, 2000. 114 pp., 89 duotone illustrations, 13¾x8¾".
    This is a beauty:
    Pigment Prints.
    Photographs by Josef Sudek.
    Salander-O'Reilly Galleries, New York, 1998. 160 pp., numerous color illustrations, 8¾x11¼".

    Unfortunatly all these books are out of print, but searching you could find them.
