Dezső Szabó
(1967-) Studied between 1990-97 at the Painting Faculty of the Hungarian
Academy of Fine Arts. After his early monochrome paintings, his interest turned
to photography. He records the scenes of air and natural disasters (Black Box,
1999), various natural phenomena (Tornado, 2001), enigmatic locations
(Location, 2000), and deep-sea photography, on his small film camera, modelled
from still photos extracted from television programmes, for the most part. With
the re-creation of the scene and the image, Szabó questions the mechanisms of
the functioning of images and their contemporary status. The self-annihilating
logic of the maquette and the chosen subject matter indicates a kind of extreme
in the modelling of the scene in his Time-Bomb series (2008).
