New York by George Konkoly-Thege

Konkoly-Thege is a Hungarian economist who also happens to be a freelance photographer. His vivid photographs document his extensive travels around the world. Over the years he has been to Laos, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Ghana, Guatemala, Ecuador, Iceland, Macedonia, to name only a few.

The present collection of photographs were taken during Konkoly-Thege’s various trips to New York. They try to capture the vibrant and multicultural essence of New York City, from Manhattan’s green oasis, the Central Park to the streets of Harlem, from the multitude of yellow cabs to the neon signs of Times Square.

The exhibition will be opened by David Weberman, Professor of Philosophy at CEU.
