I was born in Budapest and grew up in Eastern Europe. After my studies in England, I travelled, worked and lived in many places in Europe and Asia. I am an economist with a focus on development issues and public policy.
During my work, I have learned to appreciate the power of photography. An image or a photo essay depicting the dire situation of child labor or migrant workers, or highlighting gender inequality rallies much more public support for policy action than a lengthy research report on the topic. The camera has also given me an opportunity to see things differently and discover the countries where I have lived. Telling stories through pictures, especially on street life and social issues, is my passion.
I am based in Budapest and Bangkok, and I travel for work and photography around Southeast Asia - the region I know the best.
