As a cultural anthropologist and a photographer, I have worked with marginalized groups with social difficulties for several years, and I have often experienced that photographs open opportunities that I would not otherwise have encountered. Photographs can be a mirror that stops us in our rush, makes us think, and call to action. I have participated in several individual and group exhibitions from Hungary to New York. The subjects of my pictures are always human being and the self-created world, the contradictions of the self-created sphere.

I looked for the possibilities of how I could develop myself, how I could give means to those who don’t have voice to articulate themselves, and to those who became invisible because it’s easier to look through them than to be aware that they exist. I participated in a project where I got to know the “Photo Voice – ethical photography for social changes” method. My next step in expanding my knowledge was “Intercultural competence development for teachers, and trainers“, followed by “Help work among refugees and migrants“, then a mentor training, and finally I took part in the teaching course of Hungarian as a foreign language. I learned methods, for example the “Tree of Life Method“, and in the process I became more and more interested in how art can facilitate changes, how different art-based approaches can help reduce anxiety, increase self-esteem, and resolve other psychological conflicts.


I applied to university again, to Eötvös Loránd University Faculty of Education and Psychology, here I earned the “Social Integration Counsellor” qualification. Nowadays I am still in contact with the university, I take part in lectures and intercultural trainings as an invited lecturer from time to time.

I got closer and closer to art therapy, and once I was there, I entered this gate and got to know the Catharsis Complex Art Therapy method. The basis of the method is attuning to nature, understanding the duality of the seasons, their permanence and change, as this has a prominent role in preserving mental health. At the same time, I mastered newer and newer methods, learned Family Constellations, “Trauma-Sensitive Photography” webinar, “Trauma-informed help” under the auspices of the Hungarian Trauma Center, drawing analysis at the Institute of Projective Drawings. I trained at the workshops of art therapists Tamar Hazut and Vibeke Skov. A phototherapy training based on Judy Weiser’s method crowned all this knowledge.
