Did you know?

There is a long tradition in Hungary of breeding ducks and geese.


This woman is feeding the ducks in the late afternoon in the village of Tisza-szalka in the Northern Great Plain region of eastern Hungary. The low angle of the sun allows André Kertész to turn this humble genre scene into a dance of bright sunlight and deep shadow.
