Some 170 photographs by Andre Kertesz, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Robert Capa and Martin Munkacsi and others have been selected for the exhibition organised in cooperation with the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.

“This will be the first comprehensive exhibition of US-Hungarian photographers,” Laszlo Baan, the head of the museum, told journalists viewing the show. Baan added that the photographs have been borrowed from 17 collections in the US, primarily from the Virginia museum.

The pictures by the 32 photographers exhibited were taken in the period between the outbreak of the first world war and 1989, in Hungary, Berlin, Paris and the US.
