This monography maps in detail the life and work of this incredible, but at the same time, almost forgotten personality. The book contains rich material showing how Slovakia was depicted in Plicka´s photographs and films. The publication is full of Plicka´s personal photographs, photographs of the artist whilst working, the correspondence, manuscripts, musical notations, memoirs of his relatives and photographs from the Plicka´s family album. Karol Plicka died in 1987 in Prague, Czech Republic, and left us with a rich body of work – 40,000 musical notations of folk songs, thousands of negatives from Slovakia, Romania, Yugoslavia, Austria and the United States, four full-length films and a few short films, tens of picture publications.
