Gábor Kerekes (1945 Oberhart, Germany – 2014 Budapest) was one of the most significant Hungarian as well as European photographers, that worked in the field of art photography in the last 30 years. Initially, he was intrigued by various technical aspects of photography, which he later developed in metaphorical representations of the relationship between art and science. His technical approaches to photography range from the use of camera obscura to vintage photography techniques and shooting with professional large-format cameras.
In his work, Kerekes focused on the limits of human perception and explored the characteristics of human sensorial organs, in particular, those help us perceive our environment – the eye, the ear and the brain. His works are known to combine both a rational and a magical approach to photography.
