Josef Koudelka: Vestiges (projection)
November 3, 2017

Photo Lux festival is set to stage an exhibition of Josef Koudelka’s archaeological sites

Between 1991 and 2012, Josef Koudelka visited nineteen countries bordering the Mediterranean, stopping at over two hundred Greek and Roman archeological sites.

This was an unprecedented exploration which has not yet been completed – Koudelka keeps visiting archaeological sites in Greece, Turkey, Tunisia, Algeria, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon and other Mediterranean countries – searching not for the documents of the sites, but for the most perfect images of their existence.

The biennial Photolux Festival in Lucca, Tuscany, will stage an exhibition of Koudelka’s ongoing project, set within the historical walls of the Palazzo Ducale.
