The Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto is presenting Josef Sudek’s The Legacy of a Deeper Vision through April 7. This is Canada’s first retrospective of this renowned Czech photographer known as “the poet of Prague” because of the contemplative nature of his images. With more than 175 black-and-white photographs, this exhibition presents work from his entire career of more than 60 years.
