100-Year-Old Houses: Photo Series by Zsolt Hlinka
Hungarian photographer Zsolt Hlinka (previously) alters the spatial perception these old buildings in Budapest by capturing them from a different perspective.
“The series ‘100-year-old houses’ reinterprets the buildings as structural tunnels that lead to the infinity of the sky above. As the buildings frame the blue sky, the contrast between the geometric architectural forms and the immeasurable space overhead is exaggerated. This emphasis, in turn, draws attention to the hidden details often overlooked in buildings, like elevator shafts, window frames and brickwork. Looking at the centrally-positioned photographs from the ground up seemingly symbolizes time — as the floors rise above the camera, their levels can represent the ever-growing age of the buildings.”Architecture Photography Posted on May 13, 2016
