Antonín Kratochvíl (*1947) is one of the most important personalities of contemporary photography. Antonin is devoted to humanistically oriented photography with artistic overtones. With camera in hand, he has traversed many of the world’s conflicts to capture the state of vanishing culture and the devastation of nature, as well as captivating photographic portraits of global celebrities such as David Bowie, Keith Richards, Bob Dylan and others. Kratochvil’s charismatic and empathetic vision of the contemporary world appeals to the emotions.
