26 years after Hungary dismantled the barbed-wire fence on its border with Austria, award-winning Hungarian photographer Márton Magócsi captures the events preceding and following the completion of a razor-wire fence along its border with Serbia, hastily erected to stem the flow of tens of thousands of asylum seekers into Hungary and the European Union.
The “temporary” fence is completed. The international train crossing has been sealed with a razor-wire barrier. Over the course of Monday it was still easy to cross from Serbia into Hungary on foot. But that has come to an end. Captured below is the final day of Hungary’s open border with Serbia.
