On 4th February at 17.00, the photo exhibition of Botond Dávid

"Transylvania is like a beautiful lady”

will be opened in the Kuressaare Training Center's Light House of Design (Kohtu 22A.)


Dávid Botond plakátPhotographer Botond Dávid has been documenting the traditional costumes of various places and people in Europe and other continents as well. From his collection, we are presenting a selection presenting the Hungarian costumes from Transylvania. The motto of this selection has been inspired by famous Hungarian writer, László Nemes, who said: "Transylvania is like a beautiful woman". Botond Dávid is renewing the traditions of classical documentary ethnographic photography and by portraying young and pretty girls he would like to emphasize that traditional folk costume is not a museal memoria of past generations, but an attractive, stylish gament in the 21st century.  In his view past, present and future are one organic entity.


The exhibition is on display until 28th February.


The Kuressaare Regional Training Center has a longstanding and active relationship with Hungary, as more than 20 students have acquired international experience in recent years in two art schools of Budapest.
