Vladimir Kozak (1897-1979) was trained in Czechoslovakia in mechanical engineering, sculpture, and painting. In 1923, he immigrated to Brazil. As Kozak's interest in the indigenous tribes of Brazil grew during the 1940s and 1950s, he increasingly focused on photographing and painting Native individuals and aspects of their culture.
