"Three Colours I Know in This World quotes the first line of the Romanian communist anthem. A line translated into the language of photography can help to analyse and understand my artistic and personal motivation too. I didn't choose the subject, I just tried to clarify what I am looking for behind the picture and because of that, I started to use a method. I started to play with my pictures: so I let them direct me and conduct me. This is a personal story considering the fact that communism created an enormous chasm between the generation of my parents; and that of mine. They lived through communism and they experienced the change of regime as well, but we didn't. Therefore they know something we don't. So here is this history I only heard of and wasn't part of, here are all the traumas inherited from my parents - and they all come together as visions in my head and sensations I feel in my body. My personal motivation is to move closer to my parents. Ceaușescu's voice, fears, desires, secrets and paranoia stepped into the private lives under the evil eyes of the Securitate. My parents' best-kept secret was their beliefs, their language, and their souls. This is me."

Kincsõ Bede is a Romanian visual artist with Hungarian roots, who grew up in a small city in Transylvania, Romania. She is fascinated by the communist past of her homeland, the power of the leader Nicolae Ceaușescu, the control exercised by the security agency Securitate, and how this history is passed down across the generations. Kincsõ obtained his master's degree in photography from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest. She was awarded with many talent shows during the past few years as Carte Blanch Paris Photo, Breda Talent, FUTURES Talent program, and Photo Vogue Italia.
