Photographer Eva Besnyö at the Jeu de Paume

There is a great article on Hyperallergic about the Eva Besnyö exhibition at the Jeu de Paume in Paris right now. Besnyö was a Hungarian photographer who worked from the 1930s onward and died in 2003. This exhibition is the first to bring together her work from her early years in Berlin, her later years in the Netherlands, and her continued trips back to Hungary.

Although she come of age with other famous Hungarian emigre artists such as Lazlo Moholy-Nagy, György Kepes, and Robert Capa, she has not gotten the same amount of recognition. Eva Besnyö (1910–2003): The Sensuous Image is up at the Jeu de Paume through September 23.
