Czech photographer Josef Koudelka witnessed and recorded the military forces of the Warsaw Pact as they invaded Prague and crushed the Czech reforms. Koudelka’s negatives were smuggled out of Prague into the hands of the Magnum photography agency, and published anonymously in The Sunday Times Magazine under the initials P.P. (Prague Photographer) for fear of reprisal against him and his family. His pictures of the events became dramatic international symbols. In 1969, the “anonymous Czech photographer” was awarded the Robert Capa Gold Medal for photographs requiring exceptional courage.

The show, organized by Aperture Foundation and co-produced with Magnum Photos, is presented in conjunction with a publication of the same name.The show is comprised of 74 prints and 1 document, and a selection of significant texts from the book. The selection and sequence of the work are done in collaboration with Josef Koudelka.
