The Photojournalist Robert Capa

Until July 31, 2019

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.

András Nagy: Chrono

Coming Soon!
András Nagy’s sensitive perspective is probably best known from his work as a cinematographer, for example in the feature films Bibliotheque Pascal, White Palms, or Eternal Winter. Besides creating moving pictures and constructed spectacles, he has also established a more liberated, peculiar photographic universe. Melting snowmen, a bush on the verge of a field, parking cars in the concrete jungle of housing projects, a playful kitten chasing its shadow, crossing the street. Everyday scenes, locations, objects, which become highlighted by the gesture of taking the photograph. The meticulous compositions and the sometimes seemingly insignificant situations invite the spectators to reevaluate the relationships and interconnections, and take part in a peculiar dialogue.
