Pictorial Collective: Residents of streets named after poet Sándor Petőfi – A subjective photographic view of Hungarian society

Until 1 October, 2023

In Hungary, most streets are named after Petőfi, and if we put all 2800 of them together, we could go as far as the Atlantic Ocean. Nine members of the Pictorial Collective documentary photography collective have photographed the 266,000 residents living in the Petőfi Streets over the past year and a half. The imaginary Petőfi Street being outlined in their pictures, which extends beyond the borders of Hungary, provides a subjective view of contemporary Hungarian society.

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.
