On guard / Emil Fafek @ Leica Gallery

For what would have been the 100th birthday of the Czech photo-reporter Emil Fafek (1922-1997), curator Dana Kyndrova collated a retrospective exhibition titled On guard, which the author considered to be his professional motto. Emil Fafek contributed to the magazine Mlada fronta for over forty years and became the pictorial chronicler of our country’s post-war development. His greatest passion was sports photography. In 1964 he won third place in the World Press Photo competition in the category Sport.
