591 Exhibition - Ági Vedres

Photos © Ági Vedres

You have met Ági Vedres several times already on 591. She is part of our "Budapest connection" on 591 that I cherish a lot. This series is from a roundtrip she made this winter in Central Europe. Snow is called Hó in Hungarian. I have been thinking about that a lot. It is like Hay or "Hö" in Swedish - perhaps referring to a cover (said without googling it) Ági's pictures have a mood of a journey with people visible only at a distance. The ground is covered with snow, hó - life is a mysterious adventure. - Mr Urbano

Ági, you may like the snow very much, because it's almost an anatomy of the snow :) Nice work! Congrats to your art-home-exhibition as well :D hugs!
