Gergely Szatmari is one of the 31 winners and finalists of the LensCulture Street Photography Awards 2015! LensCulture is proud to present the work of these photographers who show us, each in their own way, why street photography today remains as fresh and vibrant as ever!
Gergely Szatmári’s “The American Idler” was created in a world where the feeling of superfluity and the menacing emptiness of the remaining time can be observed on surrounding persons and surrounding things, among which their time flows by in a compulsory way.
Szatmári merely “illustrates” his thesis with weird street object on deserted avenues, loitering figures in strange situations.
People appearing in his pictures are also in a state of slow decay. It is a gloomy Sunday in streets and sites across the United States.
