For the first time in Europe at the Capa Center
Robert Capa is one of the world’s most recognized war photojournalists. But only a few people knew that from 1947 until his death in 1954 he almost always carried at least two cameras, one of them with black and white film and the other with color. There are over a hundred color prints, related magazines and accompanying letters by the world-renowned photographer in Capa in Color–the majority seen for the first time in Europe, right here in Budapest’s Capa Center.
John G. Morris 's exhibition
Robert Capa’s friend and editor John G. Morris’s exhibition entitled Somewhere in France – The Summer of ’44 shows us Normandy in the summer of 1944, following the landings on D-Day. Unlike Capa, Morris took his pictures for himself, and they were not published until 2014. Thanks to the cooperation of the 98-year-old Morris and Robert Pledge, director of the prestigious photo agency Contact Press Images, the audience can see images in the Capa Center that had been hiding in a drawer for seventy years.
Martin Kollar’s exhibition
Martin Kollar has spent more than a year in Israel on several visits. He was the youngest among a dozen photographers who took part in the project, where selected artists were allowed to photograph the country without any restrictions and according to their own ideas. A collection of the pictures will be showned at the Capa Center’s Project Room from September 4. Admission to the exhibition is free.
