Máté Bartha spent 18 months living and working in military-style youth summer camps in rural Hungary. His series Kontakt, which won the Discovery award at this year’s Arles photography festival as well as the last year’s Capa Grand prize in Hungary, captures the rigorous discipline as well as the camaraderie of the camps, where children between the ages of 10 and 18 sleep under canvas and wake at dawn. Their long days are a dogged regime of hard work, army-style training, hiking and survival skills, including how to use replica guns that chillingly resemble the real thing.
