Josef Koudelka has been acknowledged by the London Times as "the most potent and powerful photographer alive today." Unsentimental, solitary, deeply felt, sometimes troubling, Koudelka's photographs confront us, penetrate us, demand that we reflect on life's pilgrimage. The book's opening essay, by Nobel Prizewinning author Czeslaw Milosz, provides a moving counterpoint to these images. EXiles also features an expanded biography and bibliography on Koudelka, as well as many new photographs. Born in Moravia, Josef Koudelka began his career as an aeronautical engineer. His book Gypsies was published by Aperture in 1975.

Josef Koudelka resides in Paris.
In these black-and-white photographs, Koudelka looks at incongruous images, things laying about on sidewalks, and people in grainy and stark surroundings. These images are underpinned by Koudelka's stark composition and the graininess of the photographs themselves. The photographs are beautiful, not because they present pretty images, but because they reveal the realities and oddities of life. Nobel prize-winning poet Milosz contributes an essay on the meaning of exile that is thoughtful but doesn't add to the photographs, which need no words. A good choice for photography collections.
