Peter Litvai: a slim, almost gaunt man with a friendly face. The 59-year old doesn’t like to attract attention; but in his eyes one recognizes the photographer: he has a keen eye for detail and is quicker than others when it comes to recognizing connections and peculiarities, especially in a city’s appearance. Landshut has become his town; he loves to wander through its quarters with his camera. He likes to photograph people, but architecture holds an even greater fascination.
Clear lines, symmetries, but also crumbling, faded old houses – especially in places where other photographers intentionally pretty things up. “I like the ‘ugliness’ of my surroundings. Frequently, it’s precisely the old walls that reflect the fact that life isn’t as wonderful as we sometimes think it is, and that everything is transient,” the artist elucidates.
