Adél Koleszár

Adél Koleszár (b. 1986 Hugary) is a Mexico City based photographer. The main focus of her work in the past years has been human violence, and how its constant reception can structure the society and the self. She looks for these issues from different aspects of life, from different countries and from different social groups. Adél creates visual stories based on real events, but she transforms reality into a more lyrical visualization by staging the events in order to have an emotional and thought provoking impact on the viewer. Adél was a Capa Grand Prize fellow in 2018.
