We wanted to make something new during the summer of 2017 because I felt that I’ve finally gained some clarity or transparency on how and where to move on, a sense of what is needed in the world out of the limited variety of things I’m capable of doing, but I got sidetracked by life’s rich pageant, indeed a lot of unexpected invitations occurred. Guilt Strip got some publicity, Dirty Work at Capa Center, _NO_LEDGE got new distribution at Mama Photobooks, a feat in Philosophy Mag and The Steidz, Der Greif’s Thread Count at Unseen Amsterdam… It really looked like all is telling us it’s not time yet. This next thing, it’s a bit of a start from scratch, it’s also based on a very, very delicate balance — and my collaborator and me hugely underestimated the time and energy needed to be invested in it, in every possible aspect. It’s one of those things that look very simple and effortless, but it’s the result of hard, deeply committed work and full clarity of vision. After the summer was over, we looked at each other and decided we are going to take all the time it needs to become what it wants to become. Until then, I’m present on Instagram on a reliable daily basis. Thank you for your patience. Sincerely, Bálint
