Péter Korniss is one of the determinative figures in contemporary Hungarian photography. When interpreting his œuvre it transpires that he thought not only in terms of photographic series but also of social processes. The components of his work complement each other, or rather, are composed of parts built on to each other.

His themes are formed by the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and his mode of expression is the inner logic of photography. His exhibition embraces fifty years and reveals the career of a photographer open to the changes in society which he constantly analyses, later creating from this his own pictorial world.
