Evocative photography is a tricky balancing act between the subject of the lens and the viewers. It requires a complete mastery of photography fundamentals as well as an intimate understanding of various aspects of human nature. L E X is a collection of long exposure photographs; it’s a series that perfectly captures the hollowness humans experience at various points in their lives. The emptiness after a breakup, the numbness after losing a loved one, or even the loss of long lived pet.
Zoltan Bekefy got into digital photography nearly 10 years ago in 2005, which turned out not to just be a profession but a defining moment as well in his personal outlook. Since then he has been vigorously investigating the many faces of nature everywhere, attempting to bottle special moments in a picture, freezing what he sees into timeless art.
He focuses most of his creative talents on landscape and fine art photography, coming up with striking images of oceans, the skies and mountain ranges in addition to natural substances. His aim is to be able to photograph the beauty of nature that is constantly all around us. Bekefy was drawn to landscape photography and nature because in his own words, he found it to be “more compelling, mysterious and overwhelming than any facial expression. One of my favorite locations is the ocean. I enjoy the loneliness when photographing at the coastline. I feel deeply concentrated but at the same time deeply relaxed.” Bekefy is a self-confessed travel addict which complements his passion for photography. When not on the road, he dabbles a lot in the kitchen as a novice chef. He was born in Slovakia, however currently resides in Ireland. At 31 years old, his other interests are obviously of the gastronomic nature, as well as music. “I am a landscape photographer, a fanatic traveler and a “glass half full” type of person,” he says in jest of himself.
