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.
Dorottya Vékony’s exhibition
A kiss is considered to be the metaphor of love, an eternal source of inspiration for the arts, but it is also significant as the research subject of various sciences. Dorottya Vékony’s series entitled INVAREBEST – Intimate and Variable Relationships Between Strangers has been prepared at the Photography Department of the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design. Completed with a photobook and an interactive installation, it is shown at the Project Room.
