“Koudelka’s unsentimental, stark, brooding, intensely human imagery reflects his own spirit, the very essence of an exile who is at home wherever his wandering body finds haven in the night.”– Cornell Capa
This body of work is closely linked with Josef Koudelka's personal history. In 1970, he leaves Czechoslovakia and goes into exile in England. The photographer has then traveled for over 20 years in Europe and around the world in search of nomadic lives to the rhythm of fairs, carnivals and pilgrimages. His photographs reflect his wanderings and encounters.
The Making of Exiles is not a new version of the previous books, but an exploration of the genesis and the making of this photographic journey. Enhanced by numerous photographs that have never been published—in particular the photographer’s self-portraits—and captions by Koudelka, it includes numerous archival documents (such as reproductions of his travel journals), thumbnail reproductions of the book’s layout, an introduction by curator Clément Chéroux and an essay by photo-historian Michel Frizot, who spent hours interviewing Koudelka.
