Paul Ickovic

Paul Ickovic je pri trinajstih letih z družino emigriral v ZDA in vmes živel na Češkoslovaškem, v Angliji in Kolumbiji. Študiral je na glasbeni šoli Julliard in kolidžu Goddard. Bil je asistent Henri Cartier-Bressona in sopotnik Josefa Koudelke, njegovo delo pa stoji ob strani največjim dokumentarnim in uličnim fotografom. A kar uprizarja ima pogum in srce, ki je značilno le zanj. S svojo Leico, enim objektivom in črnobelim filmom razkriva neubesedljivost, bizarnost, nežnost in lepoto življenja. Subjekt njegovega dela so neskončne variacije človeških odnosov in ženskosti, ki ju raziskuje v svojih fotografijah in risbah. Poleg tega da je pilot, printer in glasbenik je proizvedel pet knjig – Kafka’s GraveIn TransitSafe ConductGorgeous Infidelities, v sodelovanju s pesnico Nailo Moreira, in otroško knjigo Nicholas and The Magic Box. Njegove fotografije so razstavljene po celem svetu in vključene v stalne zbirke v MoMA, New York; La Bibliothèque Nationale, Pariz; National Gallery of Art, Praga;  Minneapolis Art Museum, in the Smithsonian Institution.
