1. about

    Ever since I can remember I’ve always been amazed by pictures, especially by photographs. I have found them to be a medium that goes much more beyond its physical attributes and the power of the images that are captured. What has always fascinated me is the possibility of a story being captured in a single image. Regardless of having these feelings and ideas, it still took me a long time to arrive to photography. I started my carrier at the age of 16 as the director’s assistant at the Budapest Operett Theater, and a few years later I decided to change to a career in film. After almost 15 years in theater and the film business I had the feeling that I really needed new ways to discover myself. I went to Denmark for a year where I attended a half year long program at International People’s College. That is where I decided to give up my profession in film career to become a  photojournalist. In 2008 I returned to Hungary, where I graduated from Balint György Academy of Journalism with a degree in photojournalism. While still in school I had a half year long internship at the Hungarian News Agency and where I have been working as a stringer photojournalist since 2010.

    In my work I concentrate on the humanitarian side of current affairs - people behind the news stories.
