María Paloma Velázquez
This body of work is dedicated to the prestigious history of an old, Hungarian noble family, documenting one of their last descendants, Count László Károlyi. It depicts the old-fashioned, sophisticated living environment of a man, who after spending decades in exile, decided to return to his motherland to maintain the work that his ancestors upheld from the 13th century. The low-key portraits and interiors were taken at the residency he inhabits with his wife, Madame Erzsébet, in the Károlyi Castle in the city of Fót. They echo the once important authoritative status of the family as well as the concept of the disappearing aristocratic presence that very much influenced the way that traditions and national culture is perceived today.
