I was born in 1985 in Budapest, Hungary. Presenting the life of the deprived and marginalised, putting the injustice of the world on display through my lens is a compelling subject to me. This is what led me to Syria during the civil war, without support, where a sad side of the world opened up to me, but I also made long lasting friendships. As a photojournalist I considered it my duty to report on the events in one of the neighbouring countries, and I convinced my employers to send me to Kiev on two occasions to document the Ukrainian revolution.
