SYNESTHESIA n25. 2020

The dystopian, frozen street scenes – where I highlight the monolithic buildings
and the human figures that surround it – all take away from the nature of envi-
ronmental portraiture thanks to color and tone play. Human figures lose their
human, social role in their frozen state in these pictures.

Some of the formatted parts of the picture come to light manually, some of them
come with digital tools – in the process of this transfiguration.
The buildings and the space are the canvas itself, which is colored and shaped
according to the dynamic range of the given image, which in the end creates an
isolated, aesthetic effect. This effect is reinforced by the use of metallic bar-
ite technology, as viewing the artwork from different angles produces different
visuals and changes the sense of space in the image.

For the series, the architectural and human context is the photographic image
Beyond its structure and the use of color and form elements it interacts with
the mechanism of actions

Born 1987 in Székesfehérvár, lives and works in Budapest.
He is represented by Ani Molnár Gallery, and member of the Association of Hungarian Photographers.

The common feature of his series is reduction, minimalism, which appears in colors, composition and visuals at the same time. This kind of reductivity also
involves some distance, resignation in relation of the urban appearance displayed. In one of his series, he turns to the local phenomenon of post-socialist visual
culture from a global viewpoint.
