I wrote this short article on similar issue

freihandig film (Scheugel's term), or its Czech equivalent 'Spontaneous


John Tylo
Some Trainrides and Walks in a Foreign Country (Austria, 1992)
An excelent frame-by frame diary work, not very much known, mostly
travel diary.

Alice Ruzickova
Positive negativ (Czech Republic, 1998)
A kind of very personal work, mostly single frames, but remarkable use
of negative strip.
