Owing to his line of work, from time to time, Márk Simon has to give photographic account of events, people and locations. Constructed in terms of the three unities, his series on the spas of Budapest is a lot more than a simple account. The photographer familiarly presents the milieu where the otherwise customary and constrained public space role-play is loosened up in the hot steam, and is recorded in images of a relaxed mood. This is contrasted by playful yet strictly composed still lifes, relating a still familiar past when the regular visitors in the portraits were in their prime.
Márk Simon made his series Spa City in 2007, supported by the Budapest Photography Grant.
