Ata Kandó


A couple of weeks ago I went to a second hand book market in a church nearby. A year ago I went there and found these. This year I found a very special book with photo's by Ata Kandó.


I had never heard of her, but while searching the internet I found out she is a pretty special woman, originally from Hungary, but she lived most of her life in the Netherlands.


This book 'Dream in the forest' contains photographs of her children taken in Switzerland and Austria.


The photographs are beyond beautiful and are like a fairy tale, yet very real at the same time.


The book was published in 1957, with text from her then 14 year old son.


Ata Kandó's work inspires me a lot, I'm cherishing this book for ever and I hope to find more work from her hand.


Please visit her website to find out more about this interesting woman!

  4. Prachtig he? Ik zag inderdaad een aantal websites waar ze heel veel geld vragen voor dit boek. Ik heb er een euro voor betaald, heel bizar! :)
