Literature without borders
“Fifty pictures. The portrait of fifty authors out of over whom we visited during our cross-border photo collection tour spanning many thousand kilometres and many years. Authors, poets, literary translators chased into emigration by the tempest of history, or ones who chose to stay, yet ended up finding themselves in another country at the whim of fate. One way or another, whatever language their works were written in, they contributed greatly to enriching universal Hungarian culture.” - Ottó Kaiser
