What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Time Machine:


Balint Alovits

Try as I might, I cannot stop staring at these hypnotic images by photographer Balint Alovits. The photography project, shot in staircases around Budapest, is called Time Machine, and it feels like you could almost follow the stairs down to the year they were built.

I’m an especially big fan of Alovits’s mastery of his frame. These are not easy subjects to capture, but he truly does them justice. He beautifully explores geometry as art, and I am 100% mesmerized by his work.

Follow Alovits on his website, Facebook, and Instagram.

  1. They are definitely cool. I have tried to take similar pictures (usually long rows of Tori shrine gates, or in long buildings, but never quite get the shot I am looking for.
    In this case, I especially love the triangular staircase. I wonder if the building it is in is also triangular.

  2. These are fantastic photographs. The compositions are so strong and I love those rings and spirals, the repetition of shapes. I have always loved staircase photographs. They bring back early memories of looking down tenement staircases.

  4. Love these. We walk up a lot of lighthouses, and staircases in old homes and Senate buildings and I’m always trying to capture the stairs. Never have as well as these! Though sometimes I get close. Thanks for sharing these!

  7. The Shakers here in Central Kentucky constructed spiral staircases in the mid-19th century that these photographs call to mind. Beautiful!
