<h1>Jiří David: Hidden Image</h1>

The project by Jiří David, realized during 1991 – 1995 in the Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, Austria, France and in the USA, is founded on a method developed at the beginning of the 20th century – photographs of a face are divided while in negative into two equal parts, so that two new pictures are produced: a right-sided and a left-sided one.
