Hungarian Photography Pt 2

I'll still be posting a bit infrequently until the end of the month, when I hope things settle down.  Thanks again to people for dropping by to comment, or who sent emails with nice comments or informative links.

A recent post alluded to some of my initial favorites and thoughts regarding the discovery of several online resources for photography from Hungary, done by both natives and people from other countries.  Here are a few more of my recent favorites:

* Zoltan Vancso's "Silent Stills", both the first and second installment.

* The Horus Archive of Found Photography -- those who covet found photography should have a field day with this collection of artfully random (or randomly artful) snapshots.

* Demeter Balla, who has an odd and varied assortment of still-lifes, collages, photograms, etc:

* Sandor Sara, surreal black and white documentary images and images of people:

* Andras Hajdu, who goes against the grain of the typical romantic and documentary portrayals of gypsies by using saturated color and compositions and poses derived more from fashion and commercial photography:

* Thanks especially to Peter for commenting on my previous post on Hungarian photography and including more good links.  Check them out...I especially liked Imre Benko's vast portfolio of artful documentary and street photography.  Make sure to look at Steel Town (1, 2, 3) and the Faces (1, 2, 3) series.

Hi, you have marked my favorite hungarian photographs. It's nice to know, there's someone abroad, who can appreciate their work.

Image from the Horus Archives... That skeleton pilot was more then a thousand words. That is a powerful image, that lets me think, no one is alone, even in the middle of a forested wilderness.

Can you tell me anything about Janos Denes Rockel, a photographer who was very active in the first half of the 20th Century?
