Anna Tihanyi

Berlin bhf.

Berlin bhf. (bahnhof) is rooted in intimate issues of my personal life, through which I could emphasize Berlin being a transitory place, a habitat of passengers. The series was also inspired by Hungarian authors' Berlin experiences, their visions, stories, expectations, through which I could create text-image pairs to describe the temporary homes for these authors, and me. The series not only talks about history, or memories, but as fictional, momentarily existing places it shows misplaced and unsettling situations, where people are uprooted from their origins, loved ones, and their center.

Even though these writings are inspirational, text and image work together as a puzzle here. The scenes take places in different interiors of Berlin and Budapest, show feelings and relations through these moments of transitions, additionally each photo has a literary quote. With the narrative capacity of photography I wanted to emphasize that the image is frozen in time, and there is no before or after told. Only this moment exists in the present with the permanent feeling of outcast, rootlessness and the desire of being integrated.
