The Budapest-based photographer, Zsolt Hlinka, highlights us with his interesting photo series of symmetrical and homogeneous architectural building. The photos represent the buildings by the banks of the River Danube, which shows big similarities to the characteristic Hotel in the movie “The Grand Budapest Hotel”.
Urban Symmetry presents buildings on the banks of the River Danube, which are emphasized out of their surroundings and put into soundproof, homogeneous space cleaned off the whole exterior information. However, the series cannot be considered as a dry study, because it does not depict the raw reality: if you get a closer view of the photographs, you may discover that none of the pictures show the building in its full form, but only its reflected part. After all, these fictitious buildings coming into existence perfectly grab and condense their original character into themselves, as if you could see human faces and different personalities on the building portraits.
