Hungary RA

At last night’s evening talk at the Photographers’ Gallery, Colin Ford (first head of the National Media Museum and scribe of the catalogue of the Serpentine Kertész exhibition of 1980/81) announced that he was curating an exhibition for the Royal Academy on Andre and his Hungarian contemporaries (Brassai, Capa et al).

It will be on in a couple of years.

And it will be superb (he says with confidence).

Colin – can I call you Colin? – also said a great many other things in a very informative talk about the life and works of Kertész. Best of all though it was all accompanied by the clack and whirr of a rotary slide projector – including a proper back-to-front slide.

That’s how things should be done.
