Gábor Kasza, Concrete passages about closeness and coldness… and a couple of songs, 2017

Hungarian freelance photographer and photo journalist Gábor Kasza released a concrete book on concrete architecture: in his words “a poetic photo series about relationships”. It is like a contemporary opera set where stories take place in concrete spaces. Geometric patterns also draw the story on, as they return from image to image and in this way help to establish coherence in the series. There are some diptychs shot in the same space from two different points of view. Also, one pair of photographs was taken at exactly the same moment. Not meant to be a linear story, the connection between the images is not usual. It better resembles a wave or a musical composition. This is why the author considers it a “visual symphony”. The book format does indeed impose a linear experience on the viewer.
