Karel Cudlín is a Czech photographer. Cudlín was born in Prague and started taking photographs in his teens. Borrowing his father’s Exakta and supported by his uncle, a photography enthusiast, Cudlín soon started photographing the Roma people of Žižkov, the suburb where he lived. Cudlín attended a social work school that, combined with a short stint in a low-grade job, provided him with the proletarian credentials needed to join the Fotografia cooperative. #czech #photographer #exakta #romapeople #zizkov #fotografia #cooperative #blackandwhite #bnw #monochrome #monographic #colorfilm #kodachrome #archetecture #children
