I was born in Budapest in 1971. I was raised in Rome, Paris and Madrid. I began my carreer as an art director in an advertising agency. In 2001 I switched into professional photography. Since then I have combined my own self-produced, documentary long term projects with professional assignments both editorial and commercial.
I am currently represented by Panos agency, and I cooperate with Tesauro for large commercial projects. I had five books published: History Seekers (Blur Ediciones), China Western (La Fabrica), Philosophia Naturalis (self published), La Hora del Recreo – Break Time (Lünwerg) and The Pigs, winner of the Kassel Photobook Award 2013, shortlisted at the Aperture Foundation Paris Photo Photobook Award 2013, and the only Mention of the Jury at PhotoEspaña Photobook Award. The Pigs was selected by Time magazine as one of the most relevant photobooks of 2013. Check The Pigs website to read reviews by The Guardian, Le Monde, Financial Times, the International New York Times, and this intevew by Aperture Foundation.
In recognition for my work, I have recived other awards including a World Press Photo in 2003, YIPPA in 2011, American Photography 24, 26,27 and 30. I was a finalist for a Visa d’Or in 2008, the European Publishers Award in 2009 and 2013, RM Photobook Award in 2012. I was a nominee for the Magnum Emergency Fund Foundation in 2014, and I was awarded the Lacritique.org Award at Voies Off Arles festival
My photos were published by National Geographic España, El País Semanal, D Magazine, Marie Claire France and OjodePez among others. My work is part of the permanent collection of Foto Colectania Foundation in Barcelona and the PhotoBook Museum in Cologne.
Besides my personal and editorial work, I have shot campaigns both in still photo and video for clients like Nike, Vodafone, Movistar.
