After her undergraduate studies in Sculpture, Enikő Hangay received an MFA in Photography from Cranbrook Academy of Art, one of the best American art schools. The majority of the photographs in her exhibition Quiet Days were taken in Budapest, Brooklyn (NY) and Detroit (MI) between 2000 and 2003. The guiding thread of the photographs are several marginal situations in the existence of the urban person, from a standpoint that yields to the serenity of reality. The relationship of this existence to the drift of days is indirect; it is often nostalgic and not devoid of artificial colorings. She often employs visual noises and secondary pictorial elements, obscuring the main object, in her works as expressive means, as if the viewer looked on the world through the half lowered eyelashes of the photographer. As the last phase of her motif- collecting and moment-editing activity, the photographs on the gallery walls, enlarged to different sizes, offer a glance into the closed, mysterious, quiet life- formations of the everyday.
