There's an exhibition on works of photographer Sylvia Palchy at Mai Mano House in Budapest. You can also watch a short film/documentary of her there, which is actually a very nice way to get to know her and her works a bit better.
Sylvia Palchy is a Hungarian/American photographer. She was born in Budapest. Her Hungarian Jewish mother was in hiding in fear of Nazi persecution during World
War II. Her father was a Hungarian Roman Catholic of aristocratic descent and she was raised in his faith.
Plachy's family moved to New York City due to the Hungarian revolution.
Plachy's photos have appeared in several publications such as The New York Times, The Village Voice, The New Yorker, Granta, Artforum, Fortune and many more. Her photos have been exhibited in galleries and museums in Berlin, Budapest, Chicago, Minneapolis, New York, Paris ans Tokyo, and are in collection of the MoMA in New York City, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts and the San Francisco MoMA.
Sylvia Plachy lives in New York City with her husband, and is the mother of Academy Award-winning actor Adrien Brody.
ps. At Mai Mano House there're also a collection of picture of Adrien Brody taken by his mother.
