Abstraction in white and black

The life of Dr. János Szász is worthy of attention not only because he was able to turn everything that obstructed his path into a creative force but also because he consistently carried it through, even if, in those days, it did not receive genuine appreciation in the domestic community. And his oeuvre would have deserved attention even at that time. His bold compositions evoke the paintings of László Moholy-Nagy, his pure objectivity reminds us, among others, of the works of Csaba Koncz, and his architectural photographs are reminiscent of Lucien Hervé’s images. His photographs taken on the snow-covered landscapes are companions to those of the Italian Giacomelli and the Czech Koudelka.
