Documentarian Miklós Falvay hopes to show what a day in the life of a 1920s Hungarian villager may have been like, and Motalko is perhaps the best possible attempt short of time travel.
By mapping a series of vintage photographs from the now-deserted region of Hungary, Miklós Falvay was able to convert them into 3-dimensional images, giving them depth and familiarity. The photo series depicts life around the time Hungary's first gas station opened up; a time without the Internet, widespread television or even -- in some parts -- electricity. People lived in completely different circumstances and, more importantly, saw the world through entirely foreign lenses. Motalko simultaneously manages to show the alienness of their culture as well as its closeness to ours.
Unless you're able to DIY a time machine in your garage, we'll have to settle for this virtual tour of rural Hungary.
