My City is a collection of town historical photos.
The series contains 6 pieces of large-sized photographs with 96 pictures on each. The series proves that we lived like that and could see this as well around us at the beginning of the XXI. century, in Budapest.
The collection is continuable at any time: its pieces can be seen everywhere, we live with them, we pass them every day, up and down, during the darkness and in the daylight, in the heat wave and in the middle of the snowfall. They augment and multiply with us. One only needs to notice them. Everyone has the opportunity to see what is wanted to be seen.
These photos were taken at the famous Széchenyi Bath in Budapest, Hungary, by special underwater analog camera.
My District is called Újlipótváros. This is a well-known part of the city of Budapest, capital of Hungary. This special part of Budapest has been photographed from many places and in thousand ways. It was not easy to find a new perspective.
Due to its age this part of the city - similarly to New York or Barcelona - has checkerboard-textured structure with straight, elongated and parallel streets designed with a ruler. To be able to mirror this geometric system the only thing I had to do to climb up, to get no higher than the floor of buildings looking down the streets.
For this approach I had to exit Újlipótváros a little. I stayed around and knocked on strangers' doors to get to their window or balcony I climbed the roof of a shopping center. I spent almost a year with taking photos from the sourrinding buildings of my town to create this serie showing it in different seasons of the year and parts of the day.
