Capa Grand Prize Hungary – 2019

For many who sing, write, dance, act, study, run is not just a hobby, it is a lifestyle, just like to the photographer who takes a good snapshot and keeps a moment from running away. And as George Bernard Shaw once said … “A photographer is like a cod, which produces a million eggs in order that one may reach maturity.”
