Stendhal Syndrome: The Red And The Black Poetic And Charming Series By Peter Zelei

The Stendhal syndrome is a psychosomatic disorder that causes rapid heartbeat, dizziness, fainting, confusion and even hallucinations when an individual is exposed to an experience of great personal significance, particularly viewing art. The condition is named after the 19th-century French author Stendhal, who described his experience during his 1817 visit to Florence in his book Naples and Florence: A Journey from Milan to Reggio. Stendhal’s most famous novel is “The Red And The Black”. Playing on this two notions, talented Hungarian photographer Peter Zelei has created a poetic and beautiful fine-art photography series, titled ‘Stendhal syndrome’, where we a young woman dressed in red stands out in stark contrast from the black and white background highlighting her emotions.
