György Klösz, one of the most significant city photographers of the late 19th century, passed away a hundred years ago. He had taken a considerable amount of photographs of the Hungarian capital as well. From the Budapest History Museum’s Photography Collection of 1500 photos by Klösz, László Lugo Lugosi chose sixty photos and, by finding the original shooting points and reconstructing the same field of view and focal length that his well-known predecessor worked with, he created his images of cityscapes one hundred years later. The exhibition presents 21 photo-pairs, selecting from the material previously exhibited in Budapest, Paris, and Vienna. (Texts featured are the courtesy of Pál Ritoók.)
