Bela Doka, in his series titled 'Sundays of Life', charts a challenging path for himself.
How do you photograph the quotidian moments that, while not dramatic, form the core of
life’s pleasures and satisfactions? The answer for him is found in a country house
owned by the family of his girlfriend. The world that he reveals to us is one of sun-warmed
lunch tables, cool afternoon river swims, lazy walks in pathless fields, and tasks that are
met with no timetable in mind. If we view these pictures from a hurried, urban mindset, we
see nothing. Literally. Nothing is happening. But if we shift our sensibilities – as I believe
he is asking us to do along with him – then we see the timeless, daily activities that
create a Zen of satisfaction.
