European Photography Number 109

The Hong Kong Photography Book Festival has been featured in European Photography magazine as our first step to gain an international reputation! In addition to us, the rich contents of European Photography are not to be missed!

The cover comes from the Hungarian photographer Maté Bartha’s work Kontakt (Contact).

Somewhere in Eastern Europe, children between the ages of ten and eighteen gather every summer to wear military uniforms, practice the hard life and learn how to use weapons. The home defense school is dedicated to teaching discipline, patriotism, and camaraderie. Under the camera of Maté Bartha, his photos show us the pain and glory of the children and provide us a different perspective of an unforgettable period of their life.
