I was born and grew up in Hungarian country side. In 2007, I moved to London where I began taking pictures for a hobby. I then started photographing cityscapes for stock.
From 2009, I started to work freelance by selling stock photography.
In 2011, I became very interested in analog photography and got my first SLR camera. Through analog photography, I discovered the whole genre of photo documentary through the works of Dorothy Lange,Peter Korniss,W. Eugene Smith. I became passionate about documentary photography and my interest slowly turned from cityscapes to photo documentary. At that time, I found it difficult to start projects while living in different European cities.
In 2012, I moved to Manila, Philippines with my wife. My fascination with the life of the Filipinos gave me the intense drive to start my own photo documentary projects. It was here that I learned of different religious events and festivals that are unique to the country. In my photography, I like getting up close and involved in the events going around me. My aim is to discover cultural differences and to show social issues through my photography.
Currently, I work exclusively with black and white 35mm analog technology and develop my own negatives.
