Fodor’s sensitivity for diverse, small, meaningful images gives us the feeling that in our environment small details have symbolic messages. His photographs describe a constellation of objects and writings he finds in cities. The parallelism of human thinking and behavior is accidental; none of these situations are arranged or manipulated. The message of his works is to be bravely poetic when we use our eyes to understand the world we are living in.
