Hungarian photographer Hlinka Zsolt is always looking for geometry and symmetry obsessively in each composition. Most commonly he finds them in architectural forms.
His recent project in the search for geometrical shapes and symmetries is VIENNA: its architecture, like Budapest, carries both the lasting impression of the past, and also the promise of a bright future, and the unstoppable nature of progress.
“In my photographs, I have captured this dynamism, so the common topic was chosen to be the upward aspiration. They have been apostrophized to be tunnels, reaching towards the unknown.
Though the objects may seem like stationary and silent, upon closer inspection we can see the memory of countless past events. Not only historical buildings are depicted, which are well versed in the actualities of old times, but their modern pairs are also showcased.
These forms are developed by building on their predecessors, respecting or even breaking traditions, which means they cannot be separated from each other. So the pieces of my series are all related and show a process arching over many eras”.
