Urban Symmetry is a photographic project by Zslot Hlinka, who with a clever process of abstraction represents the symmetry of the buildings, taking them out of the city context. The city in question is Budapest, by its eclectic and charming style, influenced by the different cultures present in the capital. Zslot Hlinka manages to convey through his work all the poetry that you can breathe on the banks of the Danube. Buildings are represented on soft colors, matching tones, which stand out all their beauty.
Urban Simmetry è un progetto fotografico di Zslot Hlinka, che con un abile processo di astrazione riesce a rappresentare la simmetria degli edifici, estrapolandoli dal contesto cittadino. La città in questione è Budapest, dallo stile eclettico ed affascinante, influenzato dalle diverse culture presenti nella capitale. Zslot Hlinka riesce a trasmettere attraverso il suo lavoro tutta la poesia che si respira sulle rive del Danubio. I palazzi sono rappresentati sopra colori tenui, ton sur ton, che ne risaltano la bellezza.
“Urban Symmetry presents buildings on the banks of the River Danube, which are emphasized out of their surroundings and put into soundproof, homogeneous space cleaned off the whole exterior information. However, the series cannot be considered as a dry study, because it does not depict the raw reality: if you get a closer view of the photographs, you may discover that none of the pictures show the building in its full form, but only its reflected part. After all, these fictitious buildings coming into existence perfectly grab and condense their original character into themselves, as if you could see human faces and different personalities on the building portraits.”
