Bence Bakonyi

Hungarian photographer Bence Bakonyi carries on the Moholy-Nagy tradition of creating alternate ways of visually representing reality and making us see with photography what we might not with our own two eyes. Currently based in Budapest, Bakonyi has worked on a number of series that all ask us to consider this ‘new’ reality—to suspend belief, to imagine, and to go with it.

In Floating, inspired by an image of a floating cabin Bakonyi saw at an exhibition, we are presented with gorgeous interiors that conjure up famous ballrooms and museums to which many of us wouldn’t normally have access. As if in a fairy tale or a slow-motion scene in a science fiction film, each frame presents a person suspended in air—whether that person is falling or being lifted is up to us and how we choose to read Bakonyi’s renderings of reality.
