Three months on from the toxic red mud disaster and the area looks abandoned with only remnants of what used to be a village with houses and streets. Kolontar, Hungary. 21/01/2011

It was a shocking experience to walk again in Kolontar after three months of the toxic red mud disaster, and to see the cooled places of the then photographed houses...A whole territory became empty... Whole streets became lowlands...Only the remnants of the roads indicate that some time ago there was a village with streets, houses, people, life...In October I said, it's a Chernobyl-feeling... Now it's even more like that...
These photos are a memory for what was (part of a) village...

Megdöbbentő élmény három hónap múltán újra Kolontáron járni, s látni az akkor fotózott házak hűlt helyét...
Egy egész terület lett üres... Egész utcák lettek síksággá... Csak az utak maradványai utalnak arra, hogy valaha itt település volt utcákkal, házakkal, emberekkel, élettel...
Októberben azt mondtam, hogy Csernobil-hangulat. Most még inkább az...
Ezek a képek egy valaha volt település(rész) emlékezeteként állnak itt...
