Talented Hungarian nature photographer Bence Mate’s very visual exhibition can be seen until the end of this week (April 1 Monday actually) in front of Budapest’s Saint Stephen square in front of the Basilica. It is an extraordinary program worth to watch for everyone!
I wrote a lot about him on my Hungarian blog before (unfortunately not all of it is translated into Engliish yet) – and probably I will do so in the future too. This time he organised an extraordinary nature photo exhibition in front of teh Basilica. He used special background lit surfaces to display in various sizes about seven hundred of his best photos taken around the world. Audience can visit the open-air exhibition 0-24 for free.
Tour around the country
I managed to write about the exhibition in Budapest only a few days before it’s end, but the exhibition starts a tour around the country soon. Those who miss the chance to see it in March in Budapest there will be a chance to see it in April in Debrecen or in May in Godollo, but Keszthely, Szeged, Gyor and Miskolc is also on the list of tour destinations and a visit to Eger is also in development for June.
Exhibition and presentation
Bence not only exhibits his photos, but he also holds Hungarian language presentations at all locations of the exhibition around the country titled Bloodless hunting. He has a very inspiring and captivating stlye as a speaker and his genuine photos are the best evidence of his very special and interesting adventures he can talk about.
Those who never heard him speak about his work should definitely watch the documentary made about him titled The Invisible Bird Photographer that is available in English as well. Unfortunately the short docu series Hungarian photographers of nature and his lecture at the Naturart nature Naturart nature photo festival a few years ago festival a few years ago are only available in Hungarian without even subtitles so they are less accessible for English speaking audiences.
