The New Hungarian Topography Group presents:

- exhibition on the 35th anniversary of the exhibition entitled "New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape"

In 1975 the New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape exhibition (George Eastman House, Rochester, NY) presented by Robert Adams, Lewis Baltz, Bernd és Hilla Becher, Joe Deal, Frank Gohlke, Nicholas Nixon, John Schott, Stephen Shore, and Henry Wessel Jr. opened new perspectives in landscape and documentary photography as well as conceptual ambitions.

Our goal is not to copy or even surpass this exhibition. It cannot be. We'd rather like to redefine today's environment, municipalities, or the related industrial landscape - the man-made landscape in domestic field, through the works and aspect of young contemporary photographers with different approach, but with similar interests. This is a kind of investigative work, and of course beyond its aesthetic aspect it includes the actuality conveyed by the image, thus it's also an imprint of moments and characteristics of the present age.

With New Hungarian Topography exhibition we'd like to pay tribute to the work of the great ancestors on the 35th anniversary of the exhibition.

It is such an interesting subject you are dealing with - good to see you involved Emese ;)

I've been thinking about that we have had postings lately on 591 about Robert Adams, Margherita Spilluttini including 591 Exhibitions like Trine Søndergaard(Denmark in transition) and Pascal Fellonneau (Under construction) - all treating a similar subject

It is interesting
