Josef Ptáček

Josef Ptáček (b.1946) is the father of Czech theatre photography (he photographed at the Drak Theatre, the Naive Theatre, Minor and the Na zábradlí Theatre), but also a teacher (he lectured at the Hradec Conservatory of Photography, taught at the Department of Photography at FAMU, was an external teacher at the Department of Puppetry at DAMU) and a traveller (he visited and photographed Asia, South and North America and South Africa). The fourth volume of the Czech Theatre Photography series will be devoted not only to Ptáček’s extensive theatre work, but will also present some of the images from his travel series, documentation of Czech castle parks and photographs from the Czech Jewish community.
