Jovan Dezort – Gone With Time

10 April to 19 May 2016, Vernissage 9 April 2016 at 5pm


The exhibition of 140 photographs presents events and situations in the Czech Republic and beyond its borders in the 1960´s to the 1990´s as they were captured by the European photojournalist and long time reporter for the Czech Press Office, Jovan Dezort - recipient of, among others, the Gold Seal at the World Press Photo 1970 in The Hague and the top prize of the global competition Peace for Vietnam 1973. During the years 1966–1996 as the official photographer of the South Bohemia Festival Concertino Praga, he captured many images in Jindřichův Hradec, Český Krumlov, at Červená Lhota and Hluboká chateaux as well as other places. The collection of photos from the "Concertino" is extended by a set of pictures presented two years ago at the Old Town Hall in Prague which won the "Czech Photography Personality 2014" award, given by the Association of Professional Photographers. Jovan Dezort focused on themes such as everyday life, celebrities, sports, politics and others. He photographed for the magazines Vlasta and Svět práce. He has been a freelance photographer since 1984.
