From February 7 to March 31 in the Gallery of Classical Photography an exhibition of the Hungarian-Russian photographer Andrash Fekete “Winter Fairy Tales” will be held.
Each of the 30 photos of the project is like a story from some long-forgotten fairy tale. Here is a princess and a chimney sweep, here are dashing young men and red girls, here are monsters in sheep’s skin, huge and mysterious... In his works, the author explores the nature of the fairy tale and stares intently at the faces of people who have put off affairs in order to feel like children for a few hours.
Work on the project was carried out for ten years, the pictures were taken at the “Bushoyarosh” festival in the city of Mohacs, Hungary.
“In all cultures, national holidays at the end of winter are the most joyful of the year. I wanted to convey their fierce energy and fuse, and the people’s faith that winter and evil are for a short time only need to take a wooden sword and clapperboard and go help, ”said photographer Andras Fekete.

A small country in the heart of Europe, shrouded in mist. They speak in a mysterious language, drink 60-degree “palinka”, grow curly pigs, bathe in hot springs and still place a May tree in the courtyards. One of the few western countries where a fairy tale is a part of everyday life.
