For the first time in Bucharest, the well-known photographer Josef Koudelka will present Invasion 68 Prague, an exhibition that presents the historical moments of August 1968. During those days, the thirty years old photographer realised a series of photos, which he later managed to take out of the country, when he immigrated to France. The photos were published by Magnum Photos agency one year later, in 1969, in many international magazines, on the occasion of the first anniversary of the invasion, without the author’s name. In the same year, Koudelka was honored with “the Czech anonymous photographer” award with Robert Capa golden medal from Overseas Press Club. Josef Koudelka, one of the most prominent contemporary photographers in the world, has been recognized as the author of the photographs only in 1985, after his father, who was still in Czechoslovakia, died.
