ROBERT CAPA, the Photojournalist,  On view: September 21, 2023 - November 19, 2023. The exhibition is a collaboration between the Hungarian Academy of Rome and the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center.

Robert Capa (October 22, 1913 – May 25, 1954), the world-famous photographer born in Budapest, was not only an eyewitness to the defining historical events of the 20th century but also a messenger in twenty-three countries on four continents. Throughout his life, he believed that the universal language of photography could bring about change and make the world a better place. He could look at everything with that first “creative” glance, and everything he touched seemed new and unprecedented. He saw what others could not, he was able to observe and think with a change of perspective, and therefore he was able to redefine everything and approach things with a new perspective.
