Bequeath by Zoltan Madacsi

Currently unavailable for purchase

The ninety-year old woman is washing her hair in the living-room, which is at the same time the kitchen, the bedroom and the bathroom as well. She is not showered with earthly possessions, but her faith and joy of life is unbroken.She was born in the village and has never left it.

Fortunately not only the wealth or debt in a material meaning can be bequeathed, but certain intellectuality too. The value, provided by the religion and faith, supports many people as crutch during their whole life. Every era, social group and region has its own problem, which without a moral support would hardly be bearable.
The Hungarian rural communities – similar to other countryside societies all over the world – fight against our age’s typical illnesses like aging, unemployment, or migration.
Would the intellectual and religious bequest provide enough power to the people living here and to the growing up generation to keep their identity in our accelerated, city-centralized and demanding world?

Hungary, Galgamácsa, 2011.

    Best way to prevent a sale is to put a 9,999% mrk up when you are in editing made for this image should prevent sale. Beautiful image.

    An amazing shot, with qualities similar to the Death of Marat , the neoclassical masterpiece of Jacques Louis David.
    After clicking the hide buttons as per Farfarms comments, you then need to go to the bottom of the page and save the amendments. If you have a slow connection let it happen for a while and eventually you will see at the top of the page a message that chnages have been saved.
