Editorial Reviews for this title:
Over the course of the last 50 years, Gabor Szilasi (b. Budapest, 1928) has created one of the world s most significant bodies of photographic work. His photographs, which are found in numerous private and public collections, have been sustained by an unwavering belief in the humanistic and documentary value of the medium. This publication uncovers the essence of Szilasi s artistic vision through his observations of urban and rural life and his recordings of the connections between culture and community. While much of the work was undertaken for specific projects, it is gathered here so as to reveal larger patterns of social interaction and cultural values that only become apparent when photographs taken over time are brought together. The evolution of Szilasi s work is revealed through the juxtaposition of lesser-known, never-before-published photographs with more familiar, iconic images.
