Soul and Body: Kertész to Mapplethorpe through the Eyes of the Greatest Masters of Photography
BUDAPEST  •  Museum of Fine Arts  •  Ongoing
In a curatorial statement for this show the museum sets out to explore the photographic themes on display by presenting works of art which, although not photographic icons were nevertheless created by artists that played an important role in the history of photography. A conceptual kinship can be discovered between Robert Mapplethorpe and György Tóth, as well as between Josef Koudelka and Imre Benkő, László Moholy-Nagy and Man Ray, between Martin Munkácsi and Henri Cartier Bresson, as well as between Alfred Stieglitz, who was active in the painterly era of photography, and the Hungary-based József Pécsi among others.
