Opening speech by Gabriella Csoszo photographer, teacher, activist.
The MyBudapest Photo Project, organized by Budapest Bike Maffia in cooperation with Cafe Art, draws attention to the problem of homelessness through art. The long term aim of their project is to empower people on the edge of the society and to help their social reintegration. The challenge was simple: they bought 100 disposable cameras with the support of FUJIFILM, and asked homeless people to capture Budapest the way they see it.
More than 2000 photos were submitted. The best 50 pictures were chosen by a professional jury, from which you can see a selection exhibited at CEU. Based on a public vote the best 12+1 photos will be printed as a calendar - My Budapest. 2017 and the winner artists will receive 20 000 HUF each and participants will be supported from the income of the sold calendars as well.
Entry is free!
