André Kertész: New York, 1969 ©

György Zsilák arrived in the United States in 1964 to dazzle overseas audiences with his juggling feats. He and his company met André Kertész on the street in New York, and he subsequently photographed the circus troupe’s rehearsals and performances on several occasions. In 2001, György Zsilák received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Jugglers Association, as well as the Jászai Mari Award and the Hortobágyi Károly Prize. He and his wife were also awarded the Knight’s Cross of the Order of Merit of Hungary for their active years on the artistic circuit.

Now on display for the first time in the PaperLab Gallery are the photographs the world-famous Hungarian photographer gave to György Zsilák. Zsilák told more about the story of the images.
