Photographer Karel Cuclack died


The last farewell to Karel Kuclick will be at the Great Hall of the Prague-Strainis Cemetery Hall on Monday August 26 at 11:00 am.

Kuklak started taking pictures at the age of 14. In 1959 he entered the Photo Club of Stalingrad at KKD (originally Czech amateur amateur photographers) in Nekzens, where he had his first exhibition. In the 1960s he was one of the main representatives of Czech informal or abstract expressionism, where many Czech artists took a stance in the late 1950s and 1960s. After 1968 they were more inclined towards classical photography, using larger format cameras. Throughout Prague, the landscape in the 3 Mava and Trebo areas has been a lifelong view of Kuklik's interest.

Throughout his life he created dozens of photographic cycles, which he exhibited in numerous solo and collective exhibitions. His work has been featured in collections of important local and foreign cultural institutions such as the National Gallery, the Decorative Arts Museum in Prague, the Museum of Modern F Modern Art in New York, and the French National Library in Paris.
