Hey there!

Welcome to eidolon centre – our Budapest-based institution, the only international platform to focus on everyday photography.
 
We hold on to the belief that this genre is a valuable cultural artefact, positioned at the intersection of creativity and everyday routines. The visual heritage of everyday photographs forms the foundation of our exploration and storytelling.
These images are also capable of revealing hitherto unexplored narratives about the social, cultural, and political aspects of the times and places in which they were created. We think it is time to put this unique heritage of mankind into the very centre of our attention.  
 
We invite you to scroll down and check out our future and past exhibitions, events, talks, and publications!

We are delighted to announce the launch of our first international grant for projects which explore, promote and conserve everyday photography.

Eidolon Club vol. 2 – The path of paper-based family photographs to Facebook

May 23, 2024, 18:00, Virág Benedek Ház, Budapest

For the second Eidolon Club event, we invite the admins and most active members of self-organised everyday photography enthusiast online groups and forums in Hungary to a public discussion combined with a photography screening. We would like to relive the tradition of looking at photographs together, which we might have experienced, perhaps many years ago, with the snapshots of relatives who had returned from a long desired vacation.
