Hungarian Photographers

Eyewitness: Hungarian photography in the 20th Century.
Royal Academy Exhibitions page

Haunting images of earlier lifestyles in the countryside, pictures of war by Robert Capa, photo-realism during the restrictions of the Communist era.
Shows the power of black-and-white images, we came out of this feeling a strong impression had been made on us.

I hope the current Hungarian government, who sponsored the exhibition, can be prevented from continuing to restrict liberties in the way that recent reports suggest they have been doing (eg: Amnesty International (UK) pages ).
