The everyday naturalness, triviality and fallibility of nudity is a common experience for all of us. However, the intimate image of our naked bodies reminds us of our vulnerability, so the sight of it is almost a disturbing sacral moment: confronting our deepest identity, which brings us all to endless solitude. To avoid the confrontation and ignore the contradiction, we voluntarily commit to blindness as a society.

I obtained my Masters degree in Photography at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Budapest in 2016. I studied photography for three years at the University of Art and Design, Cluj. I grew up in Transylvania in a small village. When I was a kid I drew a lot and my attention got more and more captured by visual arts. In 2020 I was selected into a group exhibition in Transylvania, Miercurea-Ciuc, Odorheiu Secuiesc, Remetea, call “Lélektér”.

In 2019 I had two solo exhibitions: in Cluj-Napoca, Romania and in the Telep Gallery, Budapest.

In 2018-2017 I was selected to an international group exhibition in PH21 Gallery, Budapest. In 2016, a part of my “Exitus” series was selected for the ARTplacc exhibition in Tihany, Hungary. 

I worked as a director on a few music videos in 2017.

My main topic is the relation of the body, soul and spirit. I am interested in human feelings, the individual’s identity or it’s eventual absence. My photos aim to capture a piece of the soul in an intimate atmosphere. I think of photography as a sublime and free matter, full of possibilities that carry the truth.

My inspiration are the human tales about life. The photographs are stories of the self, from the depth of the human soul: the connections between the body and soul, the connections between humans and animals, or other creatures. The interrelation of human beings and nature’s wonders is the most beautiful thing that I can show.
