Enikő Hangay: Quiet Days
The series 'Quiet Days' is the result of many small acts of collecting and editing. The
relationship between nature and the urban person is the guiding thread throughout - a
relationship that is indirect, nostalgic and not devoid of artificial colorings. Nature
greets one from the wall of a studio apartment in the form of a giant poster. In turn, the
original expanses of water are reduced to insignificance when filled into plastic bottles.
The play of sunshine filtering into a room travels through the entire series. Still, the
reflection of the camera flash on the cover page could be a substitute for the warmth and
light of the sun as well. A few details from parks are included to conjure up the green
oases of the city. Although the ulterior motive of the images is personal, and to a degree
they follow the journeys of the photographer, there are plenty of opportunities lett for
the viewer to associatively collaborate. The majority of the photographs were taken in
Budapest and the USA between 2000 and 2003.
