12th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Berlin bhf. - Home altar
Berlin bhf. (bahnhof) is a staged photography series, inspired by Hungarian authors’ Berlin experiences. The concepts are rooted in intimate issues of my personal life, but through which I could emphasize Berlin being a transitory state, as a habitat of the passengers, the temporary home for these authors.
I’m interested in the dialogue between photography and literature, though these texts are inspirational and rather give a common atmosphere for all images then illustrate one photograph.
The scenes take places in different interiors of Berlin and Budapest, show feelings and relations through these moments of transitions.
Through my visually coherent series I wanted to emphasize the common aspect of rootlessness and alienation, the permanent feeling of outcast and the desire of being integrated.
