Tincity started life as a short documentary about a micro-community living in former wine cellars on the hills of Avas in Miskolc, Hungary. Having finished the film, however, the team didn’t feel ready to leave their idiosyncratic subjects just yet, so they returned to take this series of photographs of houses, rooms and citizens from the area. We’re jolly glad they did.
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the photographs is the timelessness of the setting; strangely unaware of the passing years, the small community have created their own space which remains completely independent of logical chronology. Sensitively composed and respectful of their subject, these images paint a charming portrait of the anachronistic life they show.
