100 Year Old Houses


We posted about Zsolt Hlinka work before on a series of images titled Urban Symmetry but he seems to be always producing incredible work. This time we want to share his latest project titled 100 YEAR OLD HOUSES. It's series of compositions that play with perspective, which is my favorite as you might know. Anyway, check out after the break and you will understand why it deserves to be featured here.

The location of the series are hundred year old buildings of Nagykörút which are completely reinterpreted by the chosen perspective, changing our ordinary spatial perception. 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. Looking at the accurately constructed, central photographs it feels like the buildings are tunnels driving to the infinity of the sky - and this is where time appears, as if the floors leading to infinity represents time and the age of the buildings.

Zsolt Hlinka is a photographer and fine artist with focus on architecture. For more information check out http://zsolthlinka.com/
