“Szudán szinte kizárólag a háborúról és az éhínségről szóló hírekből ismert kelet-afrikai ország. Nagy Enikő fotográfus, író úgy véli, ha kizárólag a harcokkal kapcsolatban emlegetjük a térséget, végül is a háború lesz a győztes. Homok a szememben – Szudáni pillanatok című vándorkiállítása szépséget és életfilozófiát nyújt a látogatónak az Országos Idegennyelvű Könyvtárban.”

“The picture I saw was in stark contrast to the common narrative about Sudan as another conflict-ridden African country where the people are poor and need help. I felt this paralysing narrative has seized a land from its people. A place that is expected to see itself as a failure and a mere recipient of help.”

Alfonso Armada, CULTURA Newspaper, SPAIN

“Pictures and words converse before the viewers, who discover that Sudan is much more than the media simplification under the labels of “war” and “despair”, condemning many a country, or even a continent, to a portrayal that makes disgrace their essential feature. “If we only talk about war when we speak about Sudan, then the war has won.” Enikö Nagy’s look expands our perception of reality, a reality which breaks out of the straitjacket of topicality: “I wanted a book that speaks of Sudanese humanity, the culture that forms that humanity and what we can learn from it.”

José Naranjo, EL PAÍS Newspaper, SPAIN

“Like many others, Enikö Nagy came to Sudan one day with a heart full of good intentions – to a continent mainly known from that single narrative of war, hunger, misery and violence. This social worker who came to help in Africa and ended up plunging into the depths of a fascinating culture brings us a gift in the form of a book and exhibition, which in fact, is much more than a series of images or phrases. It holds a master key to change our view of the world.”
