The group exhibition titled Cure would have opened last year but was postponed indefinitely due to epidemiological restrictions. In virtual form, we now provide an insight into the exhibition, which will be visible after the reopening of the Capa Center.
In our series, in a thematic selection, we show artworks, which were made with the support of the Pécsi József Photography Grant. The fourth subject is the representations of women and femininity through the photos of Katalin Illés, Sári Ember, and Ilka Guba.
Syria, Afghanistan, Tibet, Japan – a journey from Central Asia to the Far East, through the largest continent of the world, through the photos of Hungarian photographers Lenke Szilágyi, Zoltán Szabó, András Ridovics, and Balázs Gárdi.
With the first issue of the Review of Hungarian Photography, our goal is to make the works of contemporary Hungarian photographers and photographic experts known in the international arena of photography, to present what is happening in Hungary today in the field of photography.

“The city was like a beautiful woman whose teeth were knocked out”, Robert Capa wrote of Budapest in 1948, when he photographed the still ruined Hungarian capital for six weeks. But where exactly was Capa? When did he record the reopening of the railway bridge? Where did he photograph Mátyás Rákosi? Which ruined hotel did he go to the top of? Find out more about the legendary photojournalist’s pictures taken in Budapest!
In Robert Capa’s life, not only pictures but also books and reading played an important role. Although he became world-famous as a photojournalist, he originally wanted to be a writer, and in addition, he was famous for spending hours in the bathtub in the company of a book. We now show three books that Capa has read: a detective story, a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, and one of the classics of English literature.
