In 1968 when the mainstream language of photography, even among artists, was still the clear ‘perfect’ image, Hungarian photographer Lörinczy György travelled to New York, returning home with these blurry, high-contrast, occasionally solarized images. We see parallels to the untamed images produced by the photographers of the Japanese Provoke group who were also active around this time. A wild conglomeration of images, tight crops and zooms transmit the spirit and emotion of the time and of the photographer himself.
