Viola Fátyol

Orando et laborando / Praying and working

The Latin phrase 'Orando et Laborando' ('Praying and Working') can be read on of the façade of the Reformed College of Debrecen in Hungary, a major centre for Protestant theological training. In her ethereal series of photographs, Viola Fátyol enters the closed world of the reputable church grammar school, where pupils can experience the preserving and restricting power of these two activities as they try to become adults amid tradition, faith and all the joys and torments of adolescence.
