Summer. Hanging around, drinking beer, enjoying the holiday. Swimming in the water, sunbathing on the pier. The searing heat, the sound of the crickets, the sunsets. The photo series of Szabolcs Barakonyi, Zsófia Pályi and István Bielik show the familiar faces and scenes of our summers.

“The world is the playing field of the photographer who can play in various ways – he can be severe, laughing, analyzing, instinctive, tactical or jeopardizing. The works offer a playful variety of photographic games.” In his writing titled Let’s Imagine the Game, Balázs Gáspár reflects on the photoseries, which was made during the CAPAZINE – LET’S PLAY workshop.
“A constant topic of discussion of our era and that of our youngest generations is our enthralment to technology, and how our connection to reality is slowly fading away.” In his writing titled Pictures on Speed, Endre Cserna reflects on the photoseries, which was made during the CAPAZINE – LET’S PLAY workshop.
