EXPERIENCING IMAGES

An exhibition by Hungarian photographers and children living in child protection care

In January 2018, a photography-based art therapy and experiential education project was launched for minors living in the care of the Bolyai Foster Home Center – photographers and photo artists worked together with children to produce photographs and other photo-based artworks to help the self-expression and self-understanding of the young participants. The EXPERIENCING IMAGES workshop series was led by photographer and art therapist Tamás Hossala collaborating with ten Hungarian photographers.

Ádám Urbán: Chance

Ádám Urbán: Chance

The 40-year-old copies discovered here, in Aszód, were supplemented by the pictures taken by Ádám Urbán, photographed with the technology of the 21st century. He did not mimic his father, and he did not do a remake of the existing images: he just set foot in the situation, like his father before him, and photographed how a present-day photographer saw the present-day inmates of the century-old institution. And this is what lends an interesting passage to these two sets of photographs that are remarkable on their own right as well, creating a dialogue that shouts over a time period of forty years.

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.

Zsuzsa Darab: Again

This series is a photo therapy project. The pictures, just like the accompanying confession, are kind of a conversation with my ex(es), with all the men in my life. They are also like a conversation with myself. It is a synthesis: the “letter” you’ve never sent, or the words you weren’t able to say out loud when you were should have done so. It is a closure. At the same time, it is also an open door to my feelings, to my thoughts regarding my past relationships.
