About the artist:

Over the last 50 years, Gabor Szilasi has created one of Canada’s most significant and influential bodies of photographic work, comprising environmental portraits, domestic and urban views of Montreal and Budapest, and images of rural Quebec. His photographs have been sustained by an unwavering belief in the humanistic and documentary value of the medium. (Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography)

From October 9, 2009 to January 17, 2010, the CMCP held an exhibition about Gabor Szilasi’s work: “The Eloquence Of The Everyday”. For the occasion, they produced a rich catalogue:

This comprehensive publication contains a study of the artist, a catalogue of the works in the exhibition, and an exhaustive biography that explores the different private and professional facets of Szilasi’s life. (National Gallery of Canada)
