biography under completion
Gábor KEREKES (1945-2014)
Gábor Kerekes was on of the most prominent figure of the post war photography in Hungary.
His first works in the early seventies caused surprise and he became quickly an unavoidable figure of the Hungarian neo-avant-garde photography. His reports and photo essays was widely published in the magazines till the early '80-s, when he broke up with everything which relates to the actuality.
From the late '80-s he worked on his famous Alchemy series during 17 years, within he focused on the position of the human being in the frame of the universe.
The Over Roswell series from 2002 and 2005 were partially the consequences of this interest. What an alien could perceive approaching to our lifeblood planet? What type of signs our civilizations draws on the surface of the Earth?
But his importance roots not only in the questions. He has always widened the limits of the media using dozens of technique from the most archaic one to the most up-to-date combining with contemporary meanings.
More then 30 personal exhibitions and the presence in private and public collections from Arab-Saudi to California proves the value of his art.
