Here is a great review of Miroslav Tichy's photography by by Kirsten Bengtson-Lykoudis on ArtSlant:
Miroslav Tichý, an eccentric Czech photographer whose blurred and stained photographs cry out from the walls. After abandoning a career as a classically trained painter, Tichý went underground when the Communists moved in after World War II. Dressed in a tattered overcoat and armed with primitive cameras fashioned from cardboard tubes, beer bottle caps and hand-cut plastic lenses, he furtively photographed the women of his native town of Kyjov, lurking outside cafes in the town square and near the public swimming pool, frightening and amusing his subjects with his matted hair, straggly beard and untamed visage.
The resulting series of over 100 distressed photographs is disturbing, radical, poetic and perverse. Mocking the traditional bourgeois flaneur, Tichý’s voyeuristic images of laughing young women and their truncated thighs and breasts, and furtively embracing couples comprise one of the more intriguing photography collections of his work.
