It’s rather like visual volumes of short stories, than a photo series following a strict theme or a concept. The 30 pieces of the collection are 30 stories captured in a blink of an eye. All of photos took place between the end of 2015 and the beginning of 2017, mostly in Budapest.
These moments were sometimes remote, sometimes close, almost tangible even, in other cases they were peculiar, hardly noticeable, elusive that deep down are touching personal things, are about constant curiosity, establishing contact, getting lost and found, about crises and redemption. Like Paul Auster said in his great novel:
“When you live in the city, you learn to take nothing for granted. Close your eyes for a moment, turn around to look at something else,and the thing that was before you is suddenly gone. Nothing lasts, you see, not even the thoughts inside you. And you mustn’t waste your time looking for them. Once a thing is gone, that is the end of it.”
