Desolate moor

Bence Fazakas

adj. : A desolate place, empty of people and lacking in comfort.


A subjective urban view, in which I recall my childhood cityscape of Cristur Secuiesc through the medium of photography. In the series I photographed special places and spaces that were mysterious to my childhood self, which, after seeing them again many years later, made me ask questions. These photographs serve as a memorial and documentation of an industrial town, where the communist brutalism that swept through is slowly disappearing. The "House of Students" is merging into the Orbán Balázs High School, the Foundry has been demolished, and who knows how long the huge concrete granary will stand on the outskirts of town. Therefore, I wanted to document these places before they disappear.
