Benedek Bognár: Cui Prodest

The photography grant created for commemorating the photographer, professional writer and photography teacher József Pécsi (1889–1956), was founded by the Ministry of Culture and Education in 1991. Its purpose is to help to start the career, creative work, and development of talented photographers working as independent artists, and to provide them with favorable conditions for the creation of high-quality artworks which are modern both in terms of form and content.

Máté Bartha – Anima Mundi

My project in the making focuses on the human necessity of perceiving the world as a purposeful structure through attaching causality and meaning to phenomena. The images in the series balance between documentary and conceptual photography, and observe contemporary urban space as the entirety of creation.

Viktória Balogh: Finding the End of the Rainbow

Establishing a home is a major challenge for the vast majority of Hungarian society. Construction raw material prices have risen dramatically in recent years, labor costs are high due to labor shortages, and good tradespeople are hard to find.

A selection from Máté Lakos’ series, Moratorium

I bought a flat on a 30-year loan. This means I’ll be in debt longer than I have lived so far. That is something that puts a lot of pressure on me. This photo series documents this situation. I began to take a look at the challenges of sustaining yourself, a global problem that defines the daily life of my contemporaries and myself.

Dániel Kovalovszky: An Infernal Play

My work looks at the fragility of human freedom and democracy as I record the current state of key locales of the communist dictatorship in Hungary. I visit the deepest circles of the hell of this period, which was marked by political division and which the country hasn’t come to terms with: the prisons of the Rákosi and early Kádár eras.

Márton Mónus: 90 minutes

“Oltalom” Sports Club tries to provide regular and free sports opportunities for those in need (some of the players came from deep poverty, or there are refugees, mentally handicapped, homeless or other disadvantaged children).

Zsófia Sivák: Our Prices are in Forints (2018 – )

In the recent years several rural taverns had to close its doors permanently or had to transform themselves into something totally different, deprived from their original functions. In my photo series I am going to visit and photograph the pubs which are still in business in Heves county’s settlements under the population of 3000 inhabitants.

Identity and self-identity – Anikó Robitz: Woven Mirror

Woven Mirror is a new series centred on the concept of identity and self-identity, which I began at the end of 2019. For these pictures, I cut photos, printed on canvas, and reflective leatherette into stripes of varying width, interwove them, and mounted them on stretchers. While the vocabulary of forms continues to be geometric, these new works are multi-layered and reach out into the third dimension.

Images from You Are Here, the album of Tibor Gyenis

Geometry informs the images of the landscape interventions, of the objects Tibor Gyenis placed in natural settings, and similar formal principles applied when he carved or cut out parts of the photographs’ mounts.
