Schilt Publishing Gallery is a commercial gallery that operates globally from the physical space in Amsterdam. We intend to organise major survey exhibitions at least a couple of times per year showcasing one of our photographers.
From 19 November 2016 until 22 February 2017, we are proud to present a huge exhibition by two great Czech artists: photographs by Pavel Baňka and ceramic sculptures by Jindra Viková.
Pavel Baňka was born in 1941 in Prague, and has had several creative “lives”, which have intermingled for decades. As a photographer, a teacher, and a mentor in the Czech Republic, the USA and the UK, he has influenced generations of artists. He is also known as a curator, writer and the founder of the popular photography magazine Fotograf. His work is held in many collections including the Musée de la Photographie, Charleroi, Belgium; the George Eastman House, Rochester (NY) and the Art Institute of Chicago (IL), USA. His photographs have been exhibited in galleries, museums and festivals all over the world.
His new book Reflection, featuring most of the photographs in this exhibition, has just been published by Schilt Publishing.
