    Very hypocritical that im told I can't take photographs while looking at a photo of someone taking a photo of people watching a photo in a museum. The irony of this moment was golden.

    As you enter the museum, enlarged photographs hang in the windows, distinguishing the building from its plain office-building neighbors. If photography is your genre of choice, this place has it all.

    If you like pretentious photography then this is the place for you. What's even more annoying than the majority of uninspiring photography is the ridiculous texts that describe the work.

    Too far from being an "international" center of photography. Small collection. Simply disappointed. It's just a tiny gallery not even a museum.
