Dagmar Hochová

Czech photography is interwoven with legends. Some of them are even more enchanting due to the fact that you can meet them in person. One of these is Dagmar Hochová, the first lady of Czech documentary photography. She was born in 1926 to a family of intellectuals and studied photography between 1942–46 at the State Graphics School in Prague under the tutelage of avant-garde greats, Jaromír Funke and Josef Ehm. She then completed a one-year internship in the Illek and Paul studio (where in her own words she says she learned more than with Funke). Between 1947–1953 she studied film photography at the Film and TV School of the Czech Academy of Arts (FAMU).
