GEORGE KONKOLY-THEGE

I was born in Pécs , Hungary on the 11th of June 1957. I have traveled a great deal around the Asian continent, but I have highly enjoyed nearly all 80 countries which I had visited. As I love India, my first important exhibition was about this beautiful country at the Museum of Ethnography (Budapest) in 1997. Since that time I visited India several more times which will be seen through this exhibition. A few photos are from my 'original' collection.
