Seeing these works by Bence Hajdu immediately reminded me of my friend Molly Eagan's critique of architectural photography. She took a series of photos with people in abstract positions and formations to highlight the fetishization of geometry in architectural photography and the absence of life the architecture was intended to foster.
Hajdu does the opposite here and deletes the human subjects form classic paintings, leaving the architecture, often brooding and foreboding, to stand on its own. The images are so caught up in our collective cultural conscience that they seem to scream to be inhabited.

You can't help but smile when you go to Tour de Fat. It was my first time in the parade and actually the first time I have ridden Victoria in a while. But I once again conquered the Shoe Bike!
