Petőfi’s Corpse

The series attempts to describe a Hungarian present whose post-socialist reality nourishes a new form of nationalism. A people who have been oppressed for centuries, whose culture and education has centred around the history of said oppression, is searching for a new enemy to blaim in this new free, but unfair world.

Tomoya Imamura (1991) is a Hungarian-Japanese photographer who was born in Duisburg, Germany. He graduated from the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen. His work combines a documentary approach with staged imagery, mostly around the topic of ideology and the right-wing movement in Europe.
