GABOR KEREKES

 

Gabor Kerekes was a master at exploring photography in a particular style, so that art and science can be seen cohesively. Many of his photographs are of scientific instruments and items one would find in a laboratory. Other images by Kerekes trick the eye, taken with pinhole cameras, large format cameras and using antique developing methods, so the viewer believes they are straight photographs of planets and stars, while in reality, many are of everyday objects such as apples, tennis balls and lighting conductors.

Kerekes’ varied and elaborate printing processes, often using antiquated methods, were meticulously handcrafted using myriad techniques. His exhibition prints were proposed as editions of 10, but at the time of his death few editions had been fully realized.

Gabor Kerekes’ photographs have been exhibited through North America and in Europe in 2015 and a major retrospective of his work is being planned for exhibition in Hungary.
