Garry Winogrand: Women Are Beautiful

Garry Winogrand, the “pioneer of street photography” captured the women int he United States of America in the 1960s and 1970s with quick and accurate timing through special angles. During the second wave of feminism and in the age of sexual revolution, the figure of a confident, happy, free, rebellious and beautiful woman is reflected through the lens of Winogrand through everyday scenes of life – by the swimming pool, on the beach, on the street.

Anna Fabricius: Mandarin Woman

The examination of female roles, activities and attributes is a recurring theme in the subject choices of the photographer Anna Fabricius. During her travels to Asia over the past two years, her attention turned towards the younger generations’s self-definition and new kind of search for an identity perceived through their changes of style, clothing, and consumer goods. The pieces of the Mandarin Woman exhibition were mostly taken in Shanghai, the fashion capital of China. Her works are composed, but Anna Fabricius still does not work with the toolkit of staged photography in the strict sense, as the quasi-staging always leaves considerable space for chance, the play of randomness.

The Photojournalist Robert Capa

Robert Capa is considered the unique visual chronicler of several 20th-century wars (the Spanish Civil War, the Second Sino-Japanese War, the Second World War, the First Arab-Israeli War, and the First Indochina War) both in the world and the Hungarian history of photography. The Hungarian photographer, who covered five wars directly from the battlefield, made his mark in photography in the course of his tragically short life. His photographs taken in the frontlines and in the heartland brought about a visual world establishing a new school, and he showed the power of images constructed from a deep sense of humanism to generations to come, up till today.

Hello From the Other Side

September 1, 2018 - September 23, 2018

On the opposite side, the other end, the great beyond – there are several interpretations of this other side in the title, of which the photographs showcased at the exhibition relate. The images have been taken recently at different locations of Budapest, the Hungarian capital bisected by the Danube: they present details of the streets and buildings both in Buda and Pest, yet they cannot be considered to be documentary street photography, as they point beyond the simple visual reproductions of the visible world.
