My name is Balazs Somorjai; I graduated with a BA degree as a photojournalist at the Budapest Metropolitan University and with a master’s degree in Photography at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME). Although I’ve won prizes at press photo contests, my series aren’t about those who pop up in the news. 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 2021 I won the Budapest Photography Scholarship of the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center.

My works could be viewed at Capa Center, the Hungarian Press Photo Exhibitons, the Art Market Budapest or photography auctions. I like to shoot on film.
