« I like everything that is disproportionate, things that can be find in my urban photos where the human is only a tiny part of the photo compared to the nature.» LUDWIG FAVRE

About the artwork

Among all the subjects that he has photographed between Paris and New York, Ludwig Favres latest series paints a majestic portrait of Budapest, in Hungary. His images of architecture evoke the same romantic sensation as that of a Parisian photographing exotic landscapes. He showcases the prestige and monumentality of the Hungarian Parliament (Országház), a vast building inaugurated in the early twentieth century and located on the west bank of the Danube. Since 1902, it has been the home of Hungary's National Assembly. This building, whose volumes are organised around the central dome, has a neo-gothic façade but its floorplan follows baroque conventions. Capturing this site, strangely devoid of any human presence, Ludwig Favre adopts a frontal point of view and stresses the almost perfect symmetry of the architecture.
