Sarolta Bán:

Project Description

Sarolta Bán

About Sarolta Ban – I was born in 1982 in Budapest, Hungary. Originally I’m a jewelry designer, later I discovered digital photo manipulation and it became my passion and main activity. I like using ordinary elements and by combining them, I can give them various stories, personalities. I hope that the meanings of my pictures are never too limited, are open in some way, each viewer can transform them into a personal aspect. (From her blog)

I’m not so good in talking about myself, I prefer the pictures ’talk’.
