Tamas Dezso, Half King photography exhibitor and winner of Daylight’s 2011 Photo Awards Project Prize Recipient, interviewed in Daylight here.
Love his take: “For example, I met István, the lieutenant colonel [in the photo above], at the unveiling of a military monument. He was doing the military honours at the ceremonial event. To me his character symbolises the anachronistic power or rather infirmity of Hungarian military presence with his uniform projecting a theatrical appearance, giving the impression of a prop.”
Half King favorite Tamas Dezso exhibited “The Dignity of Isolation” with us last summer/fall. At his opening, he shared some of the images in this moody Daylight multimedia presentation, and we are proud and gratified that more and more recognition is coming his way.
Daylight Multimedia and the Center for Documentary Studies granted “Here, Anywhere” their 2011 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards Project Prize. In this work, Tamas “probes the inhabitants and landscapes of Hungary during the country’s transition” out of communism into capitalism.
Work from the winners of the 2011 Daylight/CDS Photo Awards will be on view at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University from September 19–December 22, 2011. More information here.
