About me

Who I am: I am Zsolt Hlinka, I was born in 1978, Budapest. After finishing my studies, I got a job in the printing industry. This medium has always appealed to me, so after a few years of practice, when I received an opportunity to become the leader of a newly opened printing house, I took the position gladly. Beside my job, another significant element of my life is photography. In my earlier years my parents helped me to develop my talents, so the passion towards photography could grow quickly in me, which is continuing ever since. This area of artistry is the one which really gives me a chance to express myself.

I am looking for geometry and symmetry obsessively in each composition. Most commoly I find them in architectural forms, and I am especially fascinated by the urban mood and evening lights, but I am also intrigued by sceneries which evoke strange feelings in me. When I take a photo, I exclude all other circumstances and focus only on the picture to be prepared. I collect moments.
