I’ve been in storms, seen storms; many kind of them, but not ever before or since one like this. The clouds where shining, like strobes or light bulbs, without a sound. It was terrifying and magnificent at the same time ( and also impossible to photograph it correctly ).

I took this at Contrast Festival 21, an alternative festival took place a few years ago. Surprisingly after the sun went down it became much easier to take pictures; most probably because the coloured lights became more visible.

“Szabad ötletek jegyzéke” ( Catalogue of free thoughts ? ) is definitely the most depressing, most intimate work of the Hungarian poet, Attila József. A shadow theatre decided to make it a recitation with some additional tones: projected, live action background imaginary, disturbing, through the curtain shapes and one single voice, without any major movements.

I was asked to take some promotional photos for the event. What I was no aware of is that due to the lack of time at the theatre itself, it will be filmed while I’m taking pictures, so I ended up working as silently as possible, without flash, without autofocus ( my tele lenses are pretty old, therefore not with ultra wave motors ). I was really happy to have the camera with me; it was probably the most discomforting plays I’ve ever seen, which makes me believe they did a good job.
