Gábor Máté: Inner Sky

Gábor Máté: Inner Sky

Gábor Máté’s photography exhibition Inner Sky, which explores the complex relationship between the personalities of parents and their children, is open for a few more days.


Through the eyes of young adults and children, the photographer’s series seeks to reveal how parents and their relationships with each other affect their children’s personal development, their choices, and their future as a whole.

The pictures show our own strategies for trying to distance ourselves from our parents or to get closer to them. The images evoke questions that we all think about from time to time.

What interactions lead to someone becoming a rebel, or why do they spend their whole life trying to live up to their parents’ expectations? Is it wrong for parents to get divorced, or is it more damaging to force a dysfunctional marriage? What belongs to me and what to my parents? What was my decision? What is theirs?

Gábor Máté summed up the essence of the project in a few sentences:

“In my pictures I trace, in the language of photography, the strange and complex link between the personalities of parents and the characters of their children. Children’s success, happiness, and desires  hang by a slender thread, spun by their parents. If we accept that the future does indeed belong to the children, then it sits at stake in the hands of their parents.”

The exhibition is on view until 10 January at the Liszt Institute—Hungarian Cultural Center Sofia and the Synthesis Gallery. According to Gábor Máté, for him, this exhibition represents the strengthening of the link with another European culture.
