    11 Magnum photographers who changed the world: Josef Koudelka

    11. Joseph Koudelka
    Nationality: Czech/French
    Quote: “The maximum, that is what has always interested me.”

    Shortly after Koudelka returned to Prague from photographing Romanian gypsies in 1968, Soviet forces invaded the city and crushed the Czech reforms. He photographed this struggle and smuggled the negatives out of Prague and into the hands of Magnum. His images were then published anonymously in The Sunday Times. Koudelka’s identity was kept hidden in order to keep he and his family safe.

    His photographs of the event drew international attention to the situation in Eastern Europe and came to symbolise the struggles of people living behind the Iron Curtain.
