Death Tunnel Portrait

Feb 15, 2018

Do you know the Death Tunnel in Budapest? I took Barbara there for an episode of my 5 minute portrait series.

It was an experiment. I talked to my client for 5 minutes, took some pictures for 5 minutes, then talk 5 more. So the whole thing took 15 minutes. I wanted to learn how to take great portraits of completely unknown people in a relatively short time. I have a lot of these, but only some are special. Like this.

What makes this series special is that it was taken in the Death Tunnel, a pedastrian tunnel under the Nyugati Pályaudvar (western railway station) in Budapest, Hungary that lets you cross undern the railway lines. It probably got its name from the tunderous rumble the trains make when they roll over it. I wanted to catch the expression on Barbi's face, I wanted to take the shots when the train rumbled. Of course only a few came, but the feeling is clearly visible on her face.

Enjoy the pictures!
