My name is Balazs Somorjai; I graduated as a photojournalist at the Budapest Metropolitan University. In my series I primarily photograph divers members of society who are often out of sight and therefore hardly or not at all known, and who represent a narrow, yet unique social stratum. In my diploma work – whose consultant was Peter Korniss, the Kossuth Prize winner photographer – I worked with people who have transformed their bodies to reach self-completion.
I strongly believe that photojournalists are eyes on the world. Our pictures can transform from news to a message from one moment to another, therefore we have common responsibility for showing reality.
My works could be seen at the Hungarian Press Photo Exhibitons, the Art Market Budapest or photography auctions. I like to shoot on film.
