I grew up in Eastern Europe with a mix of national, ethnic, linguistic and cultural identities, which made me forever interested in looking beyond stereotypes and easy answers. I’ve switched careers, lived in 5 countries and am fluent in 4 languages. Always fascinated by the world of ideas, I have degrees in a mix of social sciences (from US, UK and Hungary).
I got into photography in 2005 and into filmmaking in 2015 through the world of documentary, drawn to the power of visual language in portraying the complexity of human existence. Although I began with production and directing, very soon I found myself unable to let go of the camera, and it’s the making of the image that is still (by far) the main driver in all my work. Aside from documentary I film (and sometimes direct and edit) various art and music projects, as well as short fiction and many things that fall in between formats and genres.
