Jean Michel Basquiat by Sylvia Plachy
“Not since Robert Frank’s ‘The Americans’ have I experienced a body of work of such range and power. She makes me laugh and she breaks my heart. She is moral. She is everything a photographer should be.”–Richard Avedon
Through April 19, 110 photographs representing a half century of Sylvia Plachy’s work are on view at Mai Mano House in Budapest. The images are arranged by “mood, visual connection and by a rhythm.” This is one of the wonderful things about any presentation by Plachy. She invites a new way of seeing photographs through a carefully crafted arrangement of images.

We had the honor and pleasure of exhibiting photographs by Sylvia at the Davis Orton Gallery in 2010.
