At the lake

Lake Balaton is the largest lake in Central Europe and a popular domestic tourism center for vacationing Hungarian families. At the lake zine introduces everyday life at Lake Balaton, the “Hungarian Sea”, through a family photo series. The photos are part of a series found in public garbage bin and were taken between 1958 and 1972 on the lakeshore. Similarly to my family, this unknown family spent the summers with their only child at Zamárdi. We both experienced the institution of socialist holidays – 30 years apart.
