in 1968, josef koudelka was a 30-year-old acclaimed theater photographer who had never made pictures of a news event. that all changed on the night of august 21, when warsaw pact tanks invaded the city of prague, ending the short-lived political liberalization in czechoslovakia that came to be known as prague spring. in the midst of the turmoil of the soviet-led invasion, he took a series of photographs which were miraculously smuggled out of the country.
a year after they reached new york, magnum photos distributed the images credited to “an unknown czech photographer” to avoid reprisals. the intensity and significance of the images earned the still-anonymous photographer the robert capa award. sixteen years would pass before koudelka could safely acknowledge authorship.
fifty years after the events, the ‘invasion 68 prague’ exhibition is going on show at the european solidarity centre in gdansk, poland, featuring nearly 180 of these searing images, personally selected by koudelka from his extensive archive.
the exhibition opens tomorrow, and will be on display until may 27. for more info and to find exhibitions near you, please visit magnumphotos.com/events.
