Savvinskaya nab. 23., Moscow
The exhibition of the photographer Péter Korniss, co-organized by the Hungarian Cultural Centre in Moscow and Várfok Gallery in Budapest, has opened its doors to the public at the Classical Photo Gallery in Moscow.
The show exhibits Korniss’ most impressive and defining shots. Ranging from his 1967 photographs of the Transylvanian village Sic to his most recent, somewhat conceptual series ‘Guest Worker Women in Budapest’ (2014-17), a rich selection of his emblematic photographs are on display.
This concept allows visitors to explore the effects of irreversible changes brought about by globalisation. The exhibition also underlines the consistent endeavour and conscientious work that has been integral to Korniss’ career of fifty years, making him one of the most genuine photographers in Hungarian history.
