Family events

zine, 50 copies, rizo prints, 2018

Family events is the 2nd part from a trilogy that unfold stories from a couple of hundreds photos that found it the trash. The family photos made between the beginning of 1950 to the late 1970 and tell a lot of stories in the socialist times through the eyes of an unknown talented amateur photographer. Besides the strong historical memories and objects that reflect on this time-period the photos also represent a timeless beauty and harmony.

Family events present important family events such as a wedding, first day at school, moving or traveling in the country and abroad through a series of archive photos from the 50s-70s. There are events were important in the life of a family but in this case I also put uncommon photos in the zines,  that other families wouldn’t eternalize.

The 1st part of the trilogy collects the photos of the typical family vacation at the lake Balaton in Hungary, while the 3rd part of the trilogy is a selection of the photos that deals with gender perspectives.
