Discover The Relics Of Hungary’s Industrial Past With The Photographer Peter Trembeczki

Peter earned his BA degree as an economist and later graduated from the Photography MA programme of the Moholy-Nagy University Art and Design in Budapest, Hungary. Interested in collective memory, his photo story Victory is an exploration of Hungarian public and industrial buildings that have been either abandoned or modified. Owing to the various degrees of erosion and reconstruction they have experienced, these buildings have taken on an alternative, and at times, grotesque, identity. They have become subjects of collective remembrance — instances of a nation’s socio-political psyche.

“I grew up in a small agricultural town in southern Hungary. After the downfall of the communist era the state-run companies went bankrupt or got privatised. This created a sad, fragmented and at the same time colourful landscape: a large part of the once-thriving industrial buildings and assets were left to decay. I thought then that this was a sad view, however, today I consider it as part of our visual culture,” Peter told The Calvert Journal.
