Miroslav Tichy: A voyeur with a home-made camera

"slav Tichy Nearly 80 years old, Tichy is regarded as a real eccentric by his neighbors in Kyjov, a small Moravian town. His work reflects his obsession with the female body. But while other photographers ask women to pose, and use the best equipment and store photographs with a big care, Tichy did the opposite.

He used to hide in bushes and take pictures of unaware women and girls with his home-made cameras. Once developed they were thrown away and Tichy didn't care about them anymore. "

the man obviously has a fascination and appreciation of the female form, but it's kind of sad......the outsider looking in. Maybe living in a communist country he chose to ignore the more obvious realities and just focus upon beauty

Interesting. The images are a whole lot less creepy than the "voyeur hiding in the bushes" description might suggest.
