Eugen Wiškovský, a Czech amateur photographer, was a prominent representative of the interwar avant-garde. In seemingly non-aesthetic and technical objects (insulator, corrugated sheet, screw, etc.) he found interesting and impressive shapes, the effect of which he emphasized with elaborated cuts, changes of scale and work with light. His photographs of a functionalist power plant in Kolín, where he used innovative processes and the knowledge of László Moholy-Nagy (1895–1946) and Aleksander Mikhailovich Rodchenko (1891–1956) regarding views from below or dynamically diagonal, became famous.
