Spiaggia by Akos Major
- Esther Jablotschkin
Akos Major is a 1974 born Hungarian photographer who currently lives and works in Vienna, Austria. His series ‘Spiaggia’ (beach) arouse from his interest in photographing places which show the absence of tourists, without gloominess or any intended meaning. ‘Simply the fact that they were here, even a few days and weeks ago. Now they left, and will come back in a few months, giving place to the locals in the meanwhile. I absolutely love this period, let this be anywhere – Hungary, Iceland, Germany or Italy. Low season has sweet melancholy. And cheaper pizza.’ he explains.
