"The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes" - Arthur Conan Doyle, The Hound of the Baskervilles
The black and white photos in this zine take on a very different look and approach to the tourist experience. Having been taken in some of Budapest's most popular attractions, the photos take a step toward the surreal and avoid nearly all human presence within them, they instead look at a smaller detail of the landscape that could be mistaken for anywhere. Moving through the work there is a sense of wonder in whats photographed, a heightened sense of importance to these parts of the city. A fabric covering of a renovating building is tied up from the bottom a couple of feet off the ground, the folds almost resembling the cloth of a 16th century sculpture, except for the small branding that can just be seen to the right hand side of the fold.
The work seems at times that of a holiday which you can't quite remember or maybe one that you're reminded of years later, and trying to chase that memory it becomes warped and seems unreal, and its these photos that fall through the gaps and are discarded as not worthy to be told or shared as an experience.
