I was born as the fifth daughter to my parents in 1984. As a child, I had to deal with the varied [as in contradictory] parental views of my mother, father and four outspoken sisters. Beyond those, there wasn’t much time to be set aside for me—and as bad as it might sound, it also was a bless. Growing up in a small Hungarian village without constant parental supervision came with an enormous amount of freedom.

My slowly blooming love affair with photography started at a young age. I must have been about five when one of my sisters started her studies in the field. She built her own dark room and I could not stop admiring the magic slowly happening in a red-lit plastic tray. I received my first camera a few years later, and I took images of pretty much everything and anything. Usually pretty bad ones: blurry, messy photographs with a complete lack of sense of composition.

As soon as I turned 18, I moved to Budapest to continue my studies. The naive village girl who wanted to save the world decided to study social policy in order to make poverty extinct once and for all. While I obviously have failed this personal mission of mine, now, 20+ years more experienced, I clearly see how these studies had created the base of my passion for documentary photography.

Things started to turn serious in 2011. I attended a few classes to become a better photographer. My skills started to show and I was hooked once again. So much so that in 2015 I decided to study the theory behind, and struggled my way through an MA in Film and Photographic Studies at Leiden University.

After graduation, I started out as a freelance writer, curator and project manager. My purpose is to find and assist those that have something important to say. In today’s world of fake news, populism and on the brink of a new world, we have to make significant stories available—and accessible.
