Inner Sky I exhibition

The exhibition of head of the MOME Photography BA Gábor Máté in Sofia is on display until 10/01/2023 at the spaces of the Liszt Institute in Sofia – Hungarian Cultural Centre Sofia and Sythesis Gallery.

The exhibition Inner Sky by Hungarian photographer Gábor Máté is presented in the two spaces of Synthesis Gallery and Liszt Institute - Hungarian Cultural Center. It traces the complex link between the personalities of parents and the characters of their children. Children’s success, happiness and desires hang by a slender thread, spun by their parents.

If we accept that the future does indeed belong to the children, then it sits at stake in the hands of their parents. Does it matter whether a child has grown up with divorced parents, or in a family which has stayed together against all odds? What trace does the relationship between the parents leave on the child's soul? Gábor Máté uses the language of photography to seek answers to these questions, giving the children a voice.
