- Order Summary
I always produce images that are unique, artistic, full of personality, and I try to find every moments what is important on a wedding. I would like to keep balance the art, and the photojournalist style, because both are in the wedding.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY?
Old and nice story. My grandma got a camera from my grandpa celebrating their wedding anniversary. And what did my grandma do? Became a hardcore street photographer. She had never become a professional, but every time she had the chance, she used her camera. I am the 3rd generation photographer in the family, as my mother was a professional. It’s quite special in my case. I grew up on films, in the darkroom, and in the studio world.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Documentary, now. I changed my style about 3 years ago. The photojournalist style is difficult, requires more creativity than others (at least for me). You need to use your creativity and vivid imagination every moment of your work. I differentiate two types of photos in this style: Light, and hard. The hard photo is complex, and you have to spend some time to read, and to understand it. Light photos (the ones I am showing you now) are raw, but you can read them easily. I focus on emotions. So my favourite photos are very close, and they give very intensive experience.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN AN IMAGE?
Reality, truth, moments, lights.
WHAT INSPIRES OR MOTIVATES YOU?
Inspiration and motivation are two different things. A lot of things inspire me: music, noises, fine art pictures and other photographers. I have to say a big thank you to Fearless photographers. It’s a group of amazing photographers and each time I see their photos, I have the desire to be better and continuously improve myself as a member of that society. And - I know it sounds freaky – but war photojournalist photos are also amazing me. They’re full of story, full of emotions. Many photos give visual or mental explosions for me.
What motivates me? Every time I take a photo of something really touching or emotional, I have the feeling that my heart beats the same as the people’s I photo. True motivation for me to give emotions, feelings, thoughts, or anything meaningful through my photos to anybody watching them. I also had one photographer friend who gave me a lot of energy, and motivated me to find myself again, and again, thanks it for Andras Rabloczky.
WHAT CHALLENGES YOU?
It is a difficult question. In the near past I have realized that we have just a very short time to live, to feel, to love. Once I read an amazing thought from Nan Goldin: “I used to think that I could never lose anyone if I photographed them enough. In fact, my pictures show me how much I’ve lost.” When you lose somebody, what do you do? Search for a photo, and just watch. Watch her/him laugh, teardrop, grimace... and you feel close as if that lost person was with you. So, what is challenging for me? Accepting the fact that everybody will die, and nobody has endless time.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOMENT OF A WEDDING?
Group photo… No. It was just a joke. In fact, that’s the only thing, the group photo, that I am not able to love.
OF ALL YOUR IMAGES, DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE ONE?
I did try to find one, but I can't. I love all my photos. :)
ANYTHING ELSE WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT Tünde?
I am a very optimistic woman. I love life, I would like to live even more than it is possible. So I try to discover the world, try to get to know the people. I believe that every single person on my photos, who gave their heart and soul the moment I took a photo of them, would be able to make the world better.
