  • Central Illusion

    Hungarian photographer Zsolt Hlinka, based on Budapest, started in press industry, becoming leader and co-owner of a publication, though photography was in his mind all along. Recently, he captured some of the areas’s oldest historic sites in the series “100 Year-Old-Houses”. The photo set manipulates concepts of spatial perception by depicting each building as upward tunnels framing blue skies, detailing the intricate window frames, elevator shafts and brickwork so often overlooked by by-passers. Each of the buildings are found along Budapest’s famous Nagykörút that was originally built in 1896 and remains a public pinnacle within the Hungarian city. As the buildings are framing the sky, the contrast is getting maximized between geometric, sealed networks of architectural forms and the unsubstantial, infinite space of the sky. “This is where time appears, as if the floors leading to infinity represents time and the age of the buildings.” - Zsolt Hlinka More information at

  • Underground Symmetry: One of A Kind Beauty of Underground's Empties

    Once empty, some places are filled with an atmosphere that is exact opposite of the one that can be experienced during the day. The underground belongs to this category. With lines and strange sensation of empties that it conveys, the subway of Budapest was captured by skilled Hungarian photographer Zsolt Hinka and collected into his series “Underground Symmetry”. This series focuses on the symmetry created by geometric shapes and the relationship between them. In those photos, the spaces are displayed in a new light, where their functionalities are completely de-emphasised and instead the composition takes the main role, where such tiny details are revealed which would otherwise be overlooked during everyday usage. Not only is the function changed for the spaces but also for the actors: as the observers of the images, they don't need to travel anywhere further, and don't have to use the means of public transportation: they can finally take a look at the spaces and discover them - they can get lost in the details. With its architectural details, the stations become a sense of an interesting geometric sight. More information at
