I personally think that my best kind of photography is photojournalism - people.
I want to present you one series or story of about 20 photos with title: Afternoon at the river

Some of you know that I took part at international photographic workshop in Slovenia called Fotopub [link]
. It is an amazing workshop!! There were about 16 exhebitions of really great photographers (hehe i also had one), several world famoues photographers were there (also one ex-magnum photographer)....there were lectures all the time...and all kind of courses....photo sessions.... each participant had mentors and.... you know we lived 7 days with photography....
So one of the stories or projects that I had done there was a story "Afternoon at the river".
All photos were taken in one afternoon. To be more exactly in 4-5 hours! But the best shots were taken in the last hour. Why? Well imagine a photographer jumping around swimmers at the river and taking pictures of them. People would be shocked right? Well I had a great mentor overthere (Balazs Gardi) who teached me how to destroy that obstacle between subject and yourself. anyway I succeeded and I actually get a very nice relation with those swimmers... they trusted me after while. Firstly there reactions were very like what do you want and so.... but finaly they accepted me. And when poeple do that you win!
Remember what Robert Capa used to say: Your pictures are not good enough if you are not close enough.
I am very proud on this collection... I suprised my self in fact. And I have also received excellent opinions from mentors, photographers, editors...
