MYSTERIOUS TRAVELER

The road is always better than the inns along the way, writes Cervantes; and the times we live in can especially confirm this motto. The road itself has become the inn, and the time spent on the road has become the endless arrival.

The nostalgia to strive for the absolute, for maximum performance, for the record of existence, for the experience of relating to the possessor, is there within us. And that which technology offers speed is truly tempting; moreover, it is the most exaggerating value that it can create. And the only thing that might match it is stillness.
(Miklós Mészöly)

’Az út mindig jobb, mint a fogadók.’ - írja Cervantes; s korunk különösképpen
magáénak vallhatja ezt a mottót. Maga az út lett fogadóvá, és az útközbeniség szüntelen megérkezéssé.

A nosztalgia megvan bennünk, hogy az abszolutra törjünk, a maximális teljesítményre, a létezés rekordjára, a birtokló azonosulás élményére – s amit a technika ajánl, a sebesség, csakugyan csábító; sőt, a legtúlzóbb érték, amit megteremthet. S amivel egyenértékű csak egy lehet még: a mozdulatlanság.
(Mészöly Miklós)

About the Author

Zoltan Vancso
vancso Budapest, Hungary

Regarding his professional career, two personalities of a photographer have come to life in him. One tries to reflect reality as clearly and comprehensibly as possible. The other one, in contrast, acts in the opposite way; it takes pleasure in discovering the improbability of reality, and funny enough, it conveys this experience with an objective tool – with photography. His works of art are related to the classic trends of photography. His photos encourage reflection, and they raise innocent and meaningless situations of reality to the heights of extraordinary and mystic dimensions.

He has held nearly 40 exhibitions in Budapest, he regularly publishes albums, and his professional and lay audience is constantly expanding. His photo movie Oceans of Sigh – Cuba was shown in Budapest cinemas with great success as a short movie to accompany Wim Wenders‘ film. He has received several professional rewards. In 2004, he had an exhibition with William Klein in Budapest.
