Exhibition of young Hungarian photographers opens in New York SoHo
The exhibition entitled Photo Couture features a selection of the artists’ works in fashion photography, one of the organisers told MTI.
The week-long show has been organised to coincide with this year’s New York Fashion Week in the city, a capital of fashion, said Csenge Palotai, director of the Liszt Institute. Several of the artists are well-known fashion photographers with achievements in the international scene, she said.
Attila Ledenyi, a co-organiser and founder of the Budapest Art Market and Art Photo shows, said that Hungary has a special bond with the art of photography built on the legacy of such renowned Hungarian artists as Andre Kertesz, Robert Capa, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and Brassai. They have greatly influenced the upcoming generations of artists which is well-reflected by the current exhibition in New York. The exhibition will be shown in Hungary at the Art Photo Budapest event between October 19-22, he said.
