After studying at the Academy of Arts in Prague, Miroslav Tichy withdrew to a life of isolation in his hometown of Kyjov. In the late 1950s he began taking photographs of women with cameras he made by hand. He mounted the printed images on frames and, using pencil, added finishing touches, shifting the works from photography to drawing. His poetic, dreamlike pictures of feminine beauty were discovered by a former friend in the 1980s and have since been exhibited around the world.
