Ákos Czigány (1972, Budapest) is a leading and influential member of the contemporary Hungarian photography scene. His photographs are rooted in Hungarian Constructivist art traditions with the spatial influence of the Bauhaus Movement and the intellectual background of Conceptualism. In his series, ‘Skies: Hommage à Hiroshi Sugimoto’(2010–) and ‘Homes’ (2013–) he uses a vertical approach to capture the tension of human existence between the earth and the sky.
