Introducing Ida Saudková

Art

 

 

 

Ida Saudková‘s portrait photos are a rare breed today: taken on a classic film, they reference photographers and styles of the past. The Czech photographer discovered pinups long before the rest of the world remembered they had ever existed. She deliberately plays with kitsch and pop art to create a new image, often with a dash of irony and self-deprecation. In her most recent projects she creates collages from her photos, going even farther back in history of art, recreating images of saints. Her highly-regarded work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.  Her photos also decorate the walls of one of the famous Prague cafés, Café Louvre on Národní třída.
