Szász was the photographer for the Pécs Architectural Bureau from 1959, tasked with photographing the construction of the new Socialist regime – something he detested. This, however, does not show in the least in his photographs of modern architecture: they are a testament to transcending hurt and ego. Szász found his freedom amongst those crisp lines and brave perspectives. He is steeped in the German Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) tradition of the 1920s, yet takes things – a necessary – step further: he uses darkroom techniques to manipulate his images away from strict reality and towards abstraction, moving them away from the objective towards the subjective. He remained in the service of the Architectural Bureau until the end of his career.
