Marie Šechtlová

Marie Šechtlova, nee Kokešova (1928–2008) began her photographic career in 1945. After her marriage to Josef Šechtl, she helped develop the family Šechtl & Voseček photographic studio until 1953, when it was nationalized by the communist government. In the late 1950s, she became an art photographer, and in the 1960s, she was one of most successful photographers of “the poetry of the everyday”. Together with her husband, she published a number of books, and produced many exhibitions, and also pioneered the use of large scale photographic prints for interior decoration.
