BUDAPEST PANORAMA No.6038BW "Battle of Hill and River"


The most dramatic part of Budapest is the huge rock face of Gellért Hill facing the Danube. For centuries, the mighty river and the stubborn mountain have been battling it out, slowly but surely eroding one of them. In the middle of the picture, a huge whirlpool seems to be swirling, as if the river is forced to turn back here, retreating at the foot of the hill. And yet this is what the unstoppable river is washing under the rock, hoping to destroy it one day. Are we, not ourselves clinging to our views, petrified to the end, which time will wash away with us?

The proportions of the photograph are 65:24.

The black and white Budapest panorama collection by Gabor HELYES is a result of more than three decades of artistic efforts and research for the hidden miracles of Budapest. Each print is editioned to only 24 reproductions regardless of the size. The artist sets pricing as the edition sells, making this portfolio of prints investment pieces. 


Born and living in Budapest, Hungary, Gabor HELYES is a professional Architect and Photographer, who follows the organic principles of his American master, Frank Lloyd Wright. In his photographs, Gabor extends his creative 3D architectural approach to the fourth dimension, Time. He says: 'I am a born Architect, and I remain to be as such a creator in anything I work with. For me designing a whole new building or photographing something existing has no difference: both are once-in-a-lifetime highly personal love experiences. The final fruit of this affair, the Art Piece should reach the highest level both in technical and artistical sense.'
