Balazs Varga / Hungary
I started taking pictures in 2007 during a trip to the USA. Since 2010, I’m training myself through practice and learning. I’m doing assignments as well, but mainly working on my own projects. I studied sociology for 6 years. I’m mainly interested in documentary photography, street photography, and portraits.
Through photography I try to understand myself, the society, and the single person as well. The most important thing for me is, that the captured moment is only visible after the picture was taken, so the myth of the unknown comes into play. Letting the subconscious mind to take over when pushing the button, than later analysing why that certain moment was chosen, is my approach to photography. I’m looking for typical characters and trying to present everyday situations with a sarcastic, critical manner.
