Legendary Czech photographer Dagmar Hochová recently passed away at age 86.  Horchová is well known for her candid social documentary black and white photos of children and old people  in  Czechoslovakia during the latter half of the 20th century.  She enjoyed the simple activity of everyday life and shunned the use of flashes and staged portraits as well as color film.  In children she found willing subjects who were always spontaneous and sublime.  “Life is colourful but in black-and-white it is more real.”
