Marietta Varga is a Hungarian photographer. Marietta studied photography at university. The series of photographs “Raw Hill” brought her fame. The pictures in this series show architecture in the style of brutalism.
The hallmark of brutalism is raw, rough concrete. The heyday of this trend came in the period after the end of the Second World War – the 1950s and 70s, and its sphere of influence spread almost to the whole world.
“Functional, rude, monumental, special, ugly, geometric, rude, beautiful” – people evaluate brutalism in architecture differently. Many associate it with the political trends and ideology of the era, which is often associated only with negative trends. Through his series, the photographer wants to change the usual point of view on this “ugly” architectural style and highlight its uniqueness.
