Born in Budapest, Hungary in 1967. I attended the Práter street art school (Budapesti Szolgáltató-és Kézművesipari Szakképző Iskola) majoring in photography graduating in 1988. I started my carreer at Hungarian News Agency (MTI Magyar Távirati Iroda) where I studied studio photography.

 

Since 1989 besides my art projects I work as a commercial and fashion photographer. In 1993 I established my own studio where I work and teach.

 

I held courses for students at Budapest University of Technology and Economics where the topic was ’Our environment’s visual culture’ and at MOME Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest where the topic was studio studies and lighting tecniques.


I worked as a photographer at Karnak excavation (1998) and Gurna excavation (1999) in Egyipt and at an anthropolgical expedition in Pakistan in 2001.

Print books: 2007, an hommage to the novel Antal Szerb: Utas és holdvilág (The Traveler). András Gyurcsek writer/editor and I visited all the spots in Italy that are mentioned in the novel creating a photo report of the journey of the characters.
