Like André Kertész, Eva Besnyö, László Moholy-Nagy and Robert Capa, Kati Horna is part of a generation of photographers who fled the conflict and strife in Hungary in the 1930s for the safety of western Europe, while on the verge of ruin herself. After a stopover in Berlin and then Paris, Horna made a name for herself with her work on the Spanish civil war in 1937, a comission by the republican government. Already, there were signs of the strange mix of photojournalism and surrealist experimentation that increasingly grew to define her style after she finally moved to Mexico at the beginning of the second world war. This exhibiton shows more than 150 examples of work from a rich and still under-appreciated career.
