Active during the 1920s and 1930s, Jaromír Funke was one of Czechoslovakia's most important photographers. During the late 1920s, Funke used panes and spheres of glass, bottles, and other objects to create striking abstract compositions and still lifes that emphasized reflected light and cast shadows.
