The acclaimed Czech photographer Markéta Luskačová takes part in a regularly changing in-depth displays in Tate Britain’s Spotlights series. Luskačová who lives and works in London, reflects on a changing city in her portraits of London life. Everything she diligently photographed through the 70s, 80s and 90s and to a lesser degree, up to a present day, is a record of the end of the era of the Jewish Saturday markets of the East End, of which some don’t exist anymore.
Fellow photographer Roger Mayne told her long time ago: “The intention in mind must be to make a record and then an accident of having made the right record at the right time may produce ART.” In Luskačová’s case it did indeed.
