The black and white photographs by Pavel Odvody (*1953) fuse sensibility, memory and fantasy in an original manner. His exploration of the psyche, beyond the body, is what gets under the observer’s skin. Moments of nakedness, staged in magical double exposures, wraithlike patterns or silhouettes of light, reveal the human being in their multifaceted manifestation.

The leitmotif in Odvody’s photography is the human being, their physicality, their movement. Odvody experiments with different – even “incorrect” – exposures times, associating rhythm and dance in his pictures: The figure frozen in the photograph turns into a dynamic gestural expression. This volume offers for the first time an overview of the fascinating work of the photographer, who utilizes the phenomenon of light in a balance between figuration and abstraction in an unmistakably personal way.
