purchased 2018 with the support of the Czech Ministry of Culture
In the series 50% Grey Jiří Thýn explores the limits and boundaries of analogue photography. He is no longer concerned with the depicted reality, rather with technological experiments in the medium of photography, which create a form of behind-the-scenes “alchemy” that is difficult for viewers to perceive and understand.
