Belföldön 10 000 Ft felett ingyenes a kiszállítás
Péter Korniss is one of the greatest masters of contemporary Hungarian photography, a recipient of the “Artist of the Nation” award, the Kossuth Prize and the Joseph Pulitzer Memorial Prize. His work centres on documenting the disappearing lifestyle of peasants in Hungary and Transylvania. The series of images that are featured in this exhibition at the Hungarian National Gallery, titled Continuous Memory, concentrate on the most important aspects of his entire career.
The three essays in the related exhibition catalogue were written by experts who are intimately familiar with the œuvre of Péter Korniss: Colin Ford, founding director of the UK’s National Museum of Photography, Film and Television (now National Science + Media Museum), Daniela Mrázková, director of Czech Press Photo, and Péter Baki, director of the Hungarian Museum of Photography in Kecskemét.
Born in Cluj-Napoca (Romania) in 1937, Péter Korniss worked for Nők Lapja, a weekly women’s magazine, from 1961 to 1991, and then as a freelance photographer. His reputation rests on his many decades as a documentarist. His images have been exhibited in museums and galleries in 16 different countries. For three years from 1977 he was a member of the World Press Photo jury and in 1983 he joined the International Advisory Committee of the W. Eugene Smith Memorial Fund. In 1999 he became the first photographer to be awarded the Kossuth Prize. This exhibition, opening at the Hungarian National Gallery in late September, spans the 50-year career of this photographer, whose unerringly observant and analytical approach to social changes has constantly shaped and reshaped his own realm of imagery. His attention gradually shifted from traditional peasant culture towards the globalised world and the trials and tribulations of itinerant workers.
