Artist Discovery: Bence Bakonyi.



I cannot escape from the fact that I struggle with myself,
It has always been a difficult question for me: do I know him?
Who is he anyway? It's so alluring, sometimes as if the
will of the body would want to swallow me, leaving my thoughts behind,
but then comes the soul to pull me back. It's an eternal battle and a game.
Like the gravitational pull of a black hole, when it touches you,
something new is born, as if I'm not me anymore, somewhere else,
in an unknown place.

Stunning piece by photographer Bence Bakonyi
I love the words that come with the work. The talk of the unknown, and the want of knowing who one is and the internal struggle that comes with finding out. A bit shaking. I found myself a little saddened and extremely moved by the work and the words. The final image of the man standing alone surrounded by a vast and large mountain scape is incredible moving yet done in a simplistic manner. However, I'm left a little torn between emotions of sadness and joy with the words "something new is born, as if I'm not me anymore, somewhere else, in an unknown place." I find peace in these words, In knowing that something can come out from us that we may not even know exists or can see but it's there. That restores my hope.
