PhDr. Ester Plicková, CSc. – ethnographer

* 2. VII. 1928, Bratislava
† 1. XII. 2011, Bratislava

Ester Plicková (1928 – 2011) was a Slovak photographer and ethnographer with specialty in folk pottery. Interest in art history and folk culture instilled by her family background played a big part in her professional life. In her work as a photographer, she was influenced by her uncle Karol Plicka, a noted photographer, and her studies at the School of Arts and Crafts and a two year course at the School of Photography Arts. Her ethnographic interest led her to undertake studies at the Philosophy Faculty of Comenius University and year long study period at the Charles University in Prague. She conducted the research of folk pottery, her specialisation, at the Slovak National Museum (1953 – 1954) and at the Institute of Folk Culture SAS (1955 – 1989). She was interested in contacts between the folk and contemporary culture. She published numerous scientific studies and photographic collections documenting the folk culture and crafts. Archival records contained in the personal fond provide documentation of her scientific work, correspondence and personal life.
