From the publisher: "The legendary Magnum photographer Josef Koudelka has just added another volume of terrific panoramic photographs to his bibliography. Koudelka, who was born in Moravia (within the Czech Republic) in 1938, first won international acclaim for his poignant b&w studies of gypsy communities in the 1960s. His surreptitious documentation of the invasion of Prague by Warsaw Pact armies set him apart, and ultimately got him into the prestigious Magnum Agency. For years now he has been working with a panoramic camera, slowly putting out stunning images that often finding their way into books of limited availability. Theatre du Temps contains a mere 25 images, gorgeously printed, of work made in Rome over the past three years."
