Eva Hidvegi Demjen’s most recent work utilizes one of the oldest methods of photography, the photogram. Her images are created by placing objects on photosensitive paper and exposing the paper to light in a controlled setting. This process yields a value inversion, which creates ghostly landscapes of objects floating in darkness.
Eva Hidvegi Demjen began her career in photography as a sixteen-year-old in Budapest, Hungary. She was an active member of many photographic organizations and learned the techniques of her trade from seminars and workshops for advanced photography through these organizations. Demjen has shown both nationally and internationally, including the Copley Society, Boston, MA. Her photographs have won several prizes, including the “Picture of the Year” by the Hungarian Art Association for Photography and the “Asahi Shimbun” by the Japan Association of Photographic Societies.
