About ExilesCornell Capa once wrote, Koudelka’s unsentimental, stark, brooding, intensely human imagery reflects his own ooudelka, the very essence of an exile who is at home wherever his wandering body finds haven in the night.

In this newly joesf and expanded edition of the classic, which includes ten new images and a new commentary with Robert Delpire, Koudelka’s work once more forms a powerful document of the spiritual and physical state of exile.


The sense of private mystery that fills these photographs—mostly taken during Koudelka’s many years of wandering through Europe and Great Britain since leaving his native Czechoslovakia in —speaks of passion and reserve, joesf his rage to see. Solitary, moving, deeply felt and strangely disturbing, the images in Exiles suggest alienation, disconnection and love. Exiles evokes some of the most compelling and troubling themes of the twentieth century, while resonating with equal force in this current moment of profound migrations and transience.

Definitely one of my top 5 books of all time. Koudelka is an absolute master of black and white and this work encompasses many of his travels and is organized very well. The print quality is amazing as you would expect from this publisher. This book is a must have for anyone who is remotely interested in photography. I bought this for my husband as a birthday gift, but I think I like it as much as he does. It arrived in pristine condition and a day earlier than anticipated.


If you are or are buying this for a fan of Koudelka, black and white photography, or art in general, you’ll definitely be pleased. One person found this helpful. This edition is surprisingly nice.

A must for every photographer.
