It's Nice That : Hungarian photographer/art director Mate Moro intrigues us with his Filled Field project

It's Nice That : Hungarian photographer/art director Mate Moro intrigues us with his Filled Field project | Visual Culture and Communication | Scoop.it

Even for a control freak like myself, there’s something tremendously enjoyable about being befuddled on seeing a creative project. Hungarian photographer/art director Mate Moro has a portfolio full of intriguing projects, none more so that Filled Field, a series of unlikely or surprising shots saturated in a becalming rich red.

The exhibition Survival Techniques: Narratives of Resistance looks at human conflict and the ways individuals and groups endure long-term hardship. The 15 international artists in this exhibition approach contentious political issues that, although individually nuanced, present parallel fundamental challenges to the human psyche. From various reactions to situations rising out of differences in ideologies, to the impact of nationalism, ethnicity, and power, the artists investigate a range of human travails—including exile, displacement, and the struggle to exist in a state of flux.
