If you’re expecting sterile architectural photography, you will be disappointed by this exhibition.
“The photographer’s belief that everything around him is worth capturing is reaffirmed again and again. That’s why he is filled with emotions, thoughts, pictures, colors, and shapes no one else could fathom. It is his job, therefore, to capture and share his architectural vision. All of his pictures will be born of the constant struggle of coincidence and forethought.” Just as Lucien HERVÉ writes, I try to display my personal relationship to the buildings through these images rather than an objective reality. These – in the broader sense – architectural photos are my insights in a stratified form. I combine some building details, spaces and textures that I photographed at a particular spot, creating an interesting surface on the photo paper. It is often not the exact forms that are important, but the relationship between them, reflecting what I felt on the day of taking the pictures, or how I recalled the feeling later. Some of the pictures were annotated by poet Zoltán Imre HEGYI.
