    Bronze in Book / Documentary

While photographing contemporary Hungary, I focused on relations between the government and society, which stands between reality and the propaganda vision of a strong state. The photos present symbols, places, events, and in particular they show the human being entangled in the political processes of acquiring power. A person who is easy to buy with simple election slogans. In my story I do not want to analyse or to draw conclusions. I move intuitively from one place to another, tobe taken in by the sense of being lost in reality created by Victor Orban.
