ACCLIMATE

Acclimate documents how an inhabited area is formed where natural conditions are basically unsuitable for human life. The project aims to represent how mankind adapts to extreme natural conditions by shaping its habitat and how man-made objects redefine raw nature while interacting with it. Through foreign eyes, the location of the works can recall alien landscapes where the magnitude of nature is unquestionable. The contrast is so enormous between this power and everyday use objects that the settings seem almost surreal. However, the photographs of Acclimate unfold a peaceful coexistence between man and nature, thus changing our viewpoint on how adaptable humans are.

TIME MACHINE

The series Time Machine explores how forms and depth can visualise and reveal infinity in an enclosed space by capturing Budapest’s Bauhaus and Art Deco staircases from an unexpected perspective. The images, centred on spiral stairwells from the 1930s and '40s. showcase space and time, as well as movement and supreme craftsmanship. The unusual perspective transforms these stairwells into abstract forms made infinite by collapsing depth—an effect akin to that of two mirrors facing each other, known as the Droste Effect. Thus evoking the idea of a Time Machine, creating portals on the space-time continuum.
