Scope and content (narrative)

Dr. István Bartók (1929-2007), a renowned professor of liver pathology, after his retirement took up the hobby of walking the city and photographing it. After the fall of Communism, he tirelessly roamed the streets of Budapest, taking photos, and creating carefully arranged photo albums. In addition to his own photographs, the albums include documents of public life, newspaper clippings he entitled the National Pantheon and the Pictorial Chronicle which, in addition to press clippings, included election campaign mailings, photographs of posters, and even brochures of the Budapest Transport Company containing practical travel information. However, the bulk of the collection consisting altogether 30 albums (with 2-300 photos per album), is devoted to the streets, buildings, and facades of Budapest. The collection, arranged in four series, contains documents related to Bartók's activities as a photographer. In addition to the paper enlargements, the collection of nearly 10,000 photographs includes the photographer's own register (first series), 31 photo albums with his handwritten captions (second series), as well as photo collections in photo sleeves (third series) and developed negatives of his photographs (fourth series).
