The City of Prague Museum presents the exhibition Zdenko Feyfar – Unknown and Known in its main museum building at Florenc.
Celebrating the 100th anniversary of this outstanding Czech photographer’s birth, the exhibition will take place from March 3 to August 25, 2013. The exhibition will present both Feyfar’s photographs of Prague and his little known pictures of the Vltava River and Carpathian Ruthenia. Also, photographs of the Krkonoše (the Giant Mountains)--their panoramas, natural beauty, and examples of human handicrafts--will be presented.
In addition, the exhibition presents the works of MUDr. Jaroslav Feyfar, the father of Zdenko who was a passionate amateur photographer. The exhibition features many photographs which originated at the time of the 1958 Expo in Brussels. Furthermore, the author’s notes, in the form of sketchbooks and diaries which originated during his wandering through Prague, and photo-reports and portraits are presented.
In the words of PhDr. Zuzana Strnadová, Director of the City of Prague Museum: “In this exhibition we not only present the photographs of Zdenko Feyfar from our museum collections but the entire range of his oeuvre. I hope visitors will appreciate the prime quality of the presented photographs as well as the unique atmosphere”.
