peter korniss at the hungarian cultural center

Yesterday in New York I went to see an exhibition of photographs by Peter Korniss at the Hungarian Cultural Center. Called Attachment, the show documents the disappearing way of life in peasant villages in Hungary and Transylvania. Korniss started taking these mysteriously beautiful and profound photos in the late 1960's. The show ends on June 15 and is definitely worth a visit.
