Budapest Is a Trendy Loser

Ív and Candie are two Hungarian photographers. I've never met them but I exchanged emails with them for almost a year, ever since they sent me this amazing set of photos from their hometown. I like their work because it convinces me the world is insane.

Ív and Candie are two Hungarian photographers. I've never met them but I exchanged emails with them for almost a year, ever since they sent me this amazing set of photos from their hometown, Budapest. I like their work because it convinces me the world is insane. To be honest, that's really all there is to it. Here are a few words they wrote about themselves:

"Our real names are Eve and Andi and we have been watching the world together for about four years. We are Trash-Kitsch-Hunters, camp lovers, and we are not ironic at all. Our Wonderland is our hometown, because it's cool, charming, glamorous, trendy, a loser, exaggerated, theatrical, banal, artificial, artistic, perversely-elvispresley, naive, middle-class-honest, and martinparricide. We love pony-trouvé and flesh-gun.

"In the photos you can see our friends, and people who became our friends while posing in front of our cameras."

Enjoy.
