Levente Toth Photography
Hungarian-born, started photography at the age of 13, using a fully manual camera - which was definitely a tool for putting anybody in touch with the core essence of photography :-) Switched to mostly digital work in recent years. Was influenced by Transylvanian & Hungarian medieval architecture while growing up.Presently mostly focusing on architecture (classical and modern), abstract and travel photography, especially interested in interaction between people and classical architecture as juxtapositions of the ephemeral and (often seemingly) eternal.

Artist's Statement:
Light travels trough a lens, some medium captures the silent shapes depicted by it - a physical, mechanical, chemical process… But each place or moment often acquires its magic from the people that live there... and while people may be indeed ephemeral elements among the enduring vestiges they and their ancestors created, they are the elements that make those places truly magical. Hence my ideal is to be able to convey not just the mood of a place and something about its people, but also the effect that it had on me- hence maybe, hopefully, making it personal.
