On 7th March at 17.30, the photo exhibition of Botond Dávid

"Transylvania is like a beautiful lady”

will be opened in the gallery of the Hungarian Institute (Piiskopi 2.) 


davidbotond plakat TMIPhotographer 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 museum piece of past generations, but an attractive, stylish garment in the 21st century.  In his view past, present and future are one organic entity.


Photographer Botond Dávid will be with us during the opening in Tallinn and talk about the concept and the making of the photos!


The exhibition is on display until 28th February.
