Pavel Hrdlička (1911—1994) belonged to pioneers of Czech advertising photography and film in the 1930s. After completing his studies at the State School of Graphic Art in Prague (Professor Karel Novák) he became the first photographer of the advertising department of Ba?a in 1933. In the following years he contributed as a cameraman to the foundation and development of the Zlín film (advertising, documentaries, animated cartoons, etc.). His collaboration with J. Lukas, A. Hackenschmied, L. Kolda, E. Klos and other avant-garde artists turned into lifelong friendships. Hrdlička’s first solo exhibition also features other spheres of his photographic production.
