Antal

I am a Romanian photographer who believes photography allows me to share impulses, impressions, and thoughts in an open format, welcome to all interpretation.  After I moved to Budapest to graduate from Moholy-Nagy University of Art and find a broader range of career opportunities, I also had the chance to study in Paris at the School of Images Gobelins.

After 10 years of experimenting with numerous genres, it appears I have found my niche. Despite living in Budapest, my interest revolves around social issues and phenomena surrounding present-day Romania. Despite the focus being the cultural background of one country, I believe this can appeal to a more universal context as well. This is because, I hope to leave, through my work, the audience with multi-perspectivity in interpretation and not a polarized two-tone conclusion.
