As both my parents were photographers, I couldn’t help but fall into the profession. In 1980 I emigrated from Budapest to Australia, and graduated from Canberra Art School in 1987 with a major in photo media.
I have been creating personal work since the beginning of my career, and have exhibited in solo shows as well as in numerous group exhibitions from 1986 to the present.
I believe my European background has made a mark on my personal style. I am influenced by art and cinema, and my creativity is constantly fueled by travel. I feel it is very important to create a distinctive mood in my editorial work. I strive to create images that will stand the test of time, transcending the current trend of the day. In my personal work I aim to create a form of visual poetry. While working on commercial projects, I find it most satisfying when my team and I follow the client’s brief, and I can also infuse the work with my personal style. I especially love making use of the serendipitous during location work.
I have won awards in Australia and in the US for my commercial and catalogue work.
My personal work is represented in the Fuji ACMP Australian Photography Collection at the Australian National Gallery.
My most recent solo show entitled “Persona non grata” was held at Black Eye Gallery in Sydney, November 2013.
