The Bonds Of Love

1958/later printing. Silver gelatin photograph, signed by Saudek in white ink on image lower right, annotated and dated “1958” in pencil by Saudek’s agent on mount below image, 28.8 x 21.3cm. Minor chips to margins.

Annotation reads “Two women in blue jeans, handcuffed.” Illustrated in Mrázková, Jan Saudek, 2005, u.p.; Tournier, Jan Saudek: Life, love, death & other such trifles, 1991, p155.

Inspired in 1963 by Steichen’s Family of Man, Saudek began to pursue art photography as a career. In Prague, he was forced to work in a clandestine manner to avoid the secret police, as his work turned to themes of eroticism and political corruption. From the late 1970s, he became recognised as the leading Czech photographer. Ref: Wiki.
