“It is impossible to imagine the history of photography without the contributions of a vast array of extraordinary talents from Hungary. As the cliché went, “You don’t have to be Hungarian to be a great photographer—but it helps.” From the press release.
If you love black and white photography, want to see some gorgeous prints and are curious to know more about Hungarian photography, then head over to Farringdon where Hotshoe Gallery opened its new show Modern Visions: Hungarian Photography Then and Now.
On show are two bodies of work from two photographers whose oeuvre spans the mid 20th Century to the present day, János Szász and Gábor Kerekes. “Their work epitomizes the Hungarian talent for innovation and artistic expression that continues the great tradition established by Brassaï, André Kertész, Martin Munkácsi, Robert Capa and László Moholy-Nagy.”
The show is curated by international editor of the magazine Bill Kouwenhoven who took some pix on the opening night. See over to find out more about the show and get a peek inside…
