“I got tired of people not focussing on pictures themselves.” – Szabolcs Barakonyi

Erika Deák Gallery is delighted to present Szabolcs Barakonyi’s latest photo series, which was shot on crime scenes. He’s always been interested in a documentary approach to photography and the representation of the absurd nature of reality. Just as Barakonyi’s previous series, Cold Trail also deals with the relation between documentary and reality. The pictures presented at the exhibition are sad and realistic, exciting and mysterious at the same time. As soon as we realize that the photographs were taken of a situation that cannot be repeated, on a scene of an actual crime or an accident, the audience tries to solve the secret behind the scenes with an exciting, heightened emotional game.
