Sunday is the 130th anniversary of the birth of the internationally renowned Czech photographer František Drtikol. Drtikol, who studied in Munich, is known for his portraits, frequently of important people, and nudes, with his use of geometric decorations and shadows in composite portraits of nudes reflecting avant-garde trends in the interwar period. While interested in esoteric philosophy, he was also an active member of the Communist Party in the latter years of his life.
