THE INTERNATIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS “BEST OF SHOW” 2020 AT HOUSE OF LUCIE, BUDAPEST


The International Photography Awards “Best of Show” 2020 is exhibited at House of Lucie, Budapest showcasing the extraordinary work of the International Photography Awards (IPA) 2020 category winners and a special curated selection of winning images by esteemed photography curator, editor and publisher, Anne Morin.

Sharing some of her thoughts on her selection, Anne Morin said: “Bringing together photographs in the form of an exhibition is above all to give free rein to one’s sensitivity, and it is this sensitivity that makes a certain typology visible and creates a clearly defined order and logic. An exhibition contains its own dialectical movements, which together tell a story. I conceived this “Best of Show” exhibition as an exquisite corpse, this literary game invented by the Surrealists at the beginning of the 20th century, and of which Georges Bataille will say “it is the most perfect illustration of the spirit.”

The exhibition can be virtually viewed at www.photoawards.com/bestofshow2020.
