PHOTO EXHIBITION
KAISER – KINSZKI: BUDAPEST TALES 

A city seems to be nothing else but a mass of stones and people. Yet there are little stories hidden behind the play of lights and shadows. The photos taken at the beginning of the 20th century by the internationally renowned Imre Kinszki (1901-1945), murdered during the Holocaust, and those produced a century later by Ottó Kaiser (1953) tell about the same city. Both photographers share an enthusiasm for this “mass of stones and people” with parallel themes, similar rhythms, atmosphere, and, above all, loving devotion.
