Gyula Sopronyi Photography

Since I decided to be a professional photographer, I always have been searching for human aspects behind exciting visual world. Taking pictures for example of little Vietnamese villages or Turkish bath party I always have been searching for faces, eyes telling history, moments hiding heritage of generations, and was interested in reality reflecting from them.

I'm interested in changes of social role of places, and people behind this process. The series, born in my mind, a picture – realized through human fate and stories. This picture may disappear soon, without any left. I was an employee of the Hungary's most influential political daily newspaper. Nowadays, I'm a freelance photographer.
