The annual national salon, devoted to a different branch of art each year, is the celebration of an entire profession at the Műcsarnok. When organising the 2nd National Salon of Photography, it was our express aim, in the spirit of solidarity, to reach out to and call upon every artist who made significant works in any area of photographic art in the last five years to participate in the exhibition.
