In Need of New Ceremonies

Lens Culture
2021

In Eastern Europe, deeply lodged remnants of dictatorship, communism, and lifetimes of constant surveillance by secret police (including, possibly, spying by friends, neighbors and even family members) have left generations unable to communicate directly with each other.

 

Kincső Bede, a 25-year-old Romanian photographer (who lives and works in Budapest, Hungary), appropriates the same tools of the former Securitate secret police — cameras with black-and-white film and bright flash lighting — to try to come to grips with her parent’s and their generation’s apparent inability to embrace 21st century freedom.
