Since I decided to be a professional photographer, I always have been searching for human aspects behind exciting visual world. Taking pictures for example of little Hungarian villages or Turkish bath party I always have been searching for faces, eyes telling history, moments hiding heritage of generations, and was interested in reality reflecting from them. I’m interested in changes of social role of places, and people behind this process. The series, born in my mind, a picture – realized through human fate and stories. This picture may disappear soon, without any left. I was an employee of the Hungary’s most influential political daily newspaper, called Népszabadság, fulfilling the daily work which is often based on routine because of lack of time. Mostly the travel abroad gave me the possibility for more thoughtful work. Nowadays, I’m a freelance photographer. I excluded those things, what bothered me. I have time to do my own photo series.
