One more week to visit

Dear Readers,
In 2013, you could see a unique exhibition set up for the public on public places, namely in metro carriages. Now, you can visit it in the Central Library.
The material of the exhibition has been selected by the staff of Budapest Collection of the Metropolitan Ervin Szabo Library from the photo collections of the Budapest City Archives, Museum Kiscell and Budapest Collection of the library.
All pieces of the displayed collection were taken of venues, people and the atmosphere of the age in the Hungarian capital by the famous photographer György Klösz.

The Hungarian photographer György Klösz (Johann Georg Justus Kloess) was born in Darmstadt, Germany, in 1844. Klösz moved to Vienna after his education and worked in a photography studio.
In the 1870s he was one of the first Hungarian photographers to take photographs outside of the studio. He captured almost 260 photographs of the city of Budapest; he took photos of the most dynamic period of its development systematically.


Dear Readers,
You are kindly invited to see a colorful exhibition that is set up in Karinthy Library.
The photos taken by Bea Kovács and Zsuzsanna Lipták show the diversity of people, emotions and impressive moments of life by an artistic view.
The exhibition can be visited until the end of March.

The artists are well-known among the readers since they had two other wonderful exhibitions (Colours, light and shade; Lands and People).
/You could see how shadows changed the general impression of a picture. The overall effect can produce by using the features of light.
Through the photos of that collection, the artists showed various "types" of interaction of light and shade that were and are perceptible for man's eyes.
The second exhibition showed the diversity of lands and people through the artist's eyes./
