What inspired the choice of the name Fortepan for the online photo archive?

The Fortepan digital archives are home to over 110 thousand photographs…………


In 2017 renowned photo journalist Tamás Urbán made his entire oeuvre available through Fortepan. His most famous photographic essays give a glimpse into the everyday moments of the punk movement, the Hungarian underground and youth living on the margins of society in the Kádár era. Which Hungarian magazine was a regular publisher of Urbán’s work?

In the exhibition and in the catalogue we can find a photograph of a Hungarian pentathlon world-champion, after whose physique the graphics of the new twenty Forint banknotes were modelled after World War II. The photograph depicts the young sportsman, who tragically died in the autumn of 1956, posing naked in the draftsman’s studio. Who is seen on this photograph?

The main campaign image of the exhibition depicts a happy family and the same photograph is featured on the cover of the exhibition catalogue too. In which year was this picture taken?
