BioMy name is Illes Toth, I was born in 1984. I began to learn the basics of photography in Denmark on Brandbjerg Folk High School in 2013. Afterwards I continued as an autodidact, I read technical books and I practiced a lot. In 2014 I attended a course of photography and I received a degree.
I am interested in people so I love to make portraits both spontaneously and adjusted. I am in love with streets, which I try to capture from both a classic and a modern point of view. I love black and white photos because in this way I can accentuate more the forms and the tones, thus the images become more honest. However, my last project, "Freeride" opened my eyes to the world of colors too. I had taken colored pictures spontaneously while riding on my bicycle (without composing or looking into the camera) then I selected the ones which are interesting in terms of form and color.
I have exhibitions regularly (Balassi Institute of New Delhi, MÜSZI Budapest etc). I already won some prizes on different contests like the André Kertész Contest.
