Telling The World’s Stories Through Pictures.


Photo by @joepetersburger / @thephotosociety // SUSTAINABLE EASTER // High School students of Ciszterci Rend Nagy Lajos Gimnázium holding their self-made Easter eggs. We started a project weeks before at University of Pécs/Hungary with the support of Hungarian Government. The goal is to replant traditions to the next generation. Instead of buying plastic or chocolate eggs, these kids are creating their own artwork during Lent. They decorated original chicken eggs with melted bee wax. Then they painted the eggs and melted down the wax after drying. We will exhibit their work before and during Easter. Introduced traditional method have been used for hundreds of years, but disappearing nowadays. This story is part of my lecture available to order: „Sustainable? Development?” – about environmental issues caused by humanity.
