Hungarian Border Fence
This photographic series is about the Hungarian border fence which was constructed in the middle of the European migration crisis in 2015, with the aim to ensure border security by preventing immigrants from entering the country and the European Union illegally. The border barrier currently 523 km long on the Hungarian border with Serbia and Croatia. There are two different types of fences, one is a 3-4 meters high wired fence with barbed tape. The other version of the barrier contains two fences: one 3 meter and one 1,5 meter high with razor wire, 900 volts of electricity, infrared and thermal cameras, speakers and a service road between the two fences. My aim is to show the absurd reality of the border, where everything shows a significant alert but migrants and civilians are missing, therefore the reason for the barrier is lost. In 2015 the peak number of the migrants were more than ten thousand daily but nowadays only a couple of people try to get through the border.
