Opening speech by József Eisenmann, photographer, leader of Senior Photographers’ Club.
György Gebhart (1910-1993) was an engine fitter who started taking photos at age 47. He said when he turned 54 he became more aware of his photography. He was not attracted to the latest crazes. He did not care about trends. Instead, his images capture his technical knowledge with a composition of natural simplicity. He knew how to depict his subject matter, the surroundings, light and shadows, sharpness and blurriness.
From the Bullet Shih photography collection.
