The web project ‘Photo of the Day (PhD)’ is a series of works paraphrasing a photo report series of the same title published on Hungary Matters, an online media channel of the Hungarian Public Service Media, written in English. Szacsva y selects works from the photos published daily on Hungary Matters and transforms them with a method specifically designed for this purpose, called ‘perinarrative retouch’. Every single detail of the manipulative process is recorded, building a narrative of moving images, enabling the artist to create a special type of technical image.

Szacsva y asked other artists to create sound tracks for the moving graphic images he created during the PhD project; the press photos visually manipulated and transformed by Szacsva y into moving images are therefore complemented with audio commentaries
