Budapest Photo Festival introduces: the best of the photographic art
Posted by Budnews · Feb 26, 2020

The biggest photography event in Hungary is awaiting with exciting exhibitions.

When we're talking about photo exhibitions, everyone thinks of the World Press Photo, although there is more than meets the... camera. Or something like that. The Budapest Photo Festival is an annual city-wide exhibition series that represents the contemporary and classical values of the photography by the presence of the Hungarian and international art scene.

The aim of the Festival is to make Budapest the „City of Photography”. The festival has two highlighted exhibitions as a frame: the opening international show and a Hungarian contemporary overview. This year's opening event is Paolo VENTURA: Venetian Stories /Automaton exhibition that brings us to Venice during the World War II. Contemporary Hungarian photographic art will be brought by an exhibition called BODY IMAGE – it shows the presence of the classical art genres in contemporary photography via nude pictures.

The emphasis of the festival, – next to the two highlighted exhibitions – , is on the presentation of the national and international contemporary scene, with the help of the biggest galleries, museums and the International Cultural Institutes of the Hungarian Capital. The Festival involves many public and professional programs also: lectures, workshops, photomarathon, museum educational events, portfolio review, a total of 53 exhibitions and programs. This year's festival starts at 28 February, for more information, visit
