Tamas Dezso

Tamas Dezso (born Budapest 1978) has been documenting rapidly disappearing worlds in both his native Hungary and neighbouring Romania since 2009. Dezso has enjoyed solo exhibitions and exhibited at art fairs internationally across the USA, UK, Europe, Australia and China. Hatje Cantz published his first monograph Notes for an Epilogue in 2015.

Notes for an Epilogue and Here, Anywhere are on-going bodies of work depicting a time of transition in rural Romania and across Hungary following the fall of Communism in the late 1980s. The projects comprise images of large-scale, painterly landscapes, derelict factories and life on the periphery of society. With these series Dezso is not offering portraits of a nation but rather a careful examination of the decaying ruins of the Soviet era, their effects on villages, communities and individuals and the slow disappearance of centuries-old traditions.
