Local eccentric bum type (AKA hipster), Miroslav Tichý took nearly a hundred photographs a day with his shoddily assembled homemade camera, wandering around the streets of his hometown, Kyjov in Czech Republic. Often spotted at bus stops, the main square, the park and the swimming pool, although he was frequently arrested for lingering around the local pool taking pictures of unsuspecting women. Like many reclusive photographers, Miroslav was obsessive about his craft, yet hoarded his thousands and thousands of photos all to himself.
