I was born in Békéscsaba Hungary in 1949. I am an economist by profession. I retired as a lecturer of different economic subjects at the Pannon University Veszprém in 2012.
As a photographer I have been greatly inspired by the works of Eugene Adget, Diane Arbus, Imre Benkő, Péter Korniss, Eugene Smith, and Lenke Szilágyi. I am mainly interested in black and white photography, autonomous reports and portraits. In spite of the fact that our world is congested with a huge amount of pictures I believe that even a single photograph can have the strength to stop its spectator and get her or him to meditate. I believe that good photos are transmitting the personality of their author. As American photographer Ansel Adams wrote: “There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.”
