Tichý, Miroslav (Czech painter and photographer, 1926-2011)

Note: Czech photographer active in Moravia created his work in obscurity for 50 years before being discovered. Poverty forced him to build cameras, enlarging equipment, and lenses from detritus. He studied painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague from 1945 until 1948 when conflicts with the Communist authorities caused him to become a dissident and a hermit. In the 1960s and 1970s he spent years in prisons and clinics.
