We invite you to the opening of the photo exhibition of Botond Dávid "Portraits of Transylvania" on 28th August 2019 at 5 pm at Viljandi Pärimusmuusika Ait! Photographer Botond Dávid has been documenting the traditional costumes of various places and people in Europe and other continents as well. From his collection, we are presenting a selection presenting the Hungarian costumes from Transylvania. The motto of this selection has been inspired by famous Hungarian writer, László Nemes, who once said: "Transylvania is like a beautiful woman". Botond Dávid is renewing the traditions of classical documentary ethnographic photography and by portraying young and pretty girls he would like to emphasize that traditional folk costume is not a museal memoria of past generations, but an attractive, stylish gament in the 21st century. In his view past, present and future are one organic entity.
The exhibition will stay open in Viljandi until 30th of September 2019
