For Arkai, photographer Bianka Schumann paints a portrait of adolescence, capturing her brother and his best friend as they explore the woods in and surrounding Bóly, a small town in the Hungarian countryside. Born at approximately the same time, the pair grew up side-by-side as neighbors. Fixed with Schumann’s intent and earnest gaze, they engage in quiet rituals that appear at once as child’s play and a concentrated search for adult meaning. In this rustic fairytale landscape, they are protected from the grown-up sphere as they are from the modern, industrial world.
