I deem JOSEF KOUDELKA as one of the greatest photographers of all time. Why? Let me share.
First of all, his tenacity. His personal interest in achieving his personal maximum. Constantly pushing his artistic vision in photography further.
2. Abstract artist
Koudelka as an abstract photography artist. Effortless beauty with out of focus photos. Simple and elegant shapes and forms. Extreme simplicity.
Koudelka traveling and shooting his entire life. Living with extreme frugality, in order for maximal personal freedom. Never doing smithing he didn’t want to do. He is 80+, still traveling and shooting!
4. Humanity and landscape
Koudelka mastering photographing humans, then moving onto landscape and urban landscape photography.
5. Never stop
Koudelka — a titan in the photo world. A human and artist I deeply admire, and hope to emulate.
