Zsuzsa Darab is a Hungarian photographer currently based in Iceland, and she describes the series of photos in her new exhibition in Budapest as a photo therapy project: "The pictures, just like the accompanying confession, are kind of a conversation with my ex(es), with all the men in my life. They are also like a conversation with myself. It is a synthesis: the 'letter' you've never sent, or the words you weren't able to say out loud when you were should have done so. It is a closure. At the same time, it is also an open door to my feelings, to my thoughts regarding my past relationships."

Born in Miskolc in 1989, Darab graduated from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest (MOME), in photography BA. In 2012, she obtained a scholarship to study painting and fine art in Denmark. In 2014, she studied at Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture in Finland under the ERASMUS programme.
