  10. 10. • Joining Magnum not only gave Koudelka a bank of friends, but also a network of people to help him out and places to stay when he travelled. However, Koudelka did not work as a conventional agency photographer, turning down assignments, and choosing instead to travel and to pursue a personal study. He photographed the gypsy population, minority groups, and everything that is destined to become extinct, to be ‘exiled’ in some way –
  11. 11. • “To be in exile is simply to have left one’s country and to be unable to return. Every exile is a different, personal experience. Myself, I wanted to see the world and photograph it. That’s forty-five years I’ve been travelling. I’ve never stayed anywhere more than three months.
  12. 12. “For fifteen years, I didn’t work for anybody. I never accepted any assignment, never photographed for money. I took photographs just for myself. I lived on the minimum. I didn’t need much: a good sleeping bag and some clothes – one pair of shoes, two pairs of socks and a pair of trousers for one year. One jacket and two shirts lasted me for three years,”

  17. 17. If you photograph people you are losing all the time something; you are running after something which doesn’t exist anymore. If you photograph the landscape, you are waiting
