Josef Sudek (1896-1976)

Josef Sudek was born in Kolín, Bohemia on 17 March 1896. His father was a house painter, who died when Sudek was three. In 1915, he left to serve in the First World War as a soldier for the Austro-Hungarian Army. Having fought on the Italian front for a year, he received serious injuries, resulting in the loss of his right arm. He spent the following three years in various hospitals, and began to take photographs out of boredom.

In 1922, Sudek finally decided to pursue his dream of becoming a photographer, and enrolled at the School of Graphic Arts in Prague, where he studied for two years.
