Miroslav Tichý is 82 years old and lives the life of a hermit in a small town in Moravia. Suddenly, in his old age, he has to face fame as his photos are being sold for up to 12.000 euros. Some call his hidden photography of women voyeuristic, some see in it an unequalled conceptual and atmospheric quality. The photographer Tichý has become a celebrity, and he could not care less. A highly acclaimed and magical approach to a non-conformist and his ocean of thoughts creating most unique works of art.
