the Tokyo opening, the Senator Howard Baker, United States Ambassador to Japan,
said, “Clearly, Mr. Revesz has managed to perfectly capture the very
spirit of the city in this series of beautiful photographs. Of course, his
technique is fantastic. Beyond that, however, one has to be impressed by the
extent to which each photograph reveals the complexity of New York and tells
us a story about the city and its people.
Soderberg, President of the Sister
City Program of the City of New York, has offered support and praise for
Tamas Revesz and his “New York” photo exhibition as a Sister City
project. She said “Mr. Revesz’ photography reveals new perspectives
on New York City to the people of Budapest and offers further cultural understanding
between New York City and her Sister Cities.
Mairs, editor of Revesz’ New York book at the W.W. Norton publishing
house in New York, said, “These are some of the most beguiling and intriguing
photographs of New York City ever taken. With a photographic eye not unlike
his fellow countryman, Andre Kertesz, Revesz captures the essence of the city
in an often surprising way.”
Budapest, the exhibition will travel over the next years to the other New
York Sister Cities – Beijing, Cairo, Jerusalem, Johannesburg, London,
Madrid, Rome and Santo Domingo.
