I am Bori Juhasz a Japanese, Korean language teacher, a professional photographer and upholsterer.

After my graduation in liberal arts in the fields of Japanese and Korean languages and obtaining my teachers diploma (M.A. degree), I decided to learn the trade of professional photography and later upholstery to keep the ballance between the intellectual and physical work.

My pictures were displayed in several different show-rooms. In addition, I also had five individual exhibitions. Because I like to deal with people, my favorite topics in photography are portraits of adults and children, public performances and weddings. I work hard to record those distinctive moments that are rare in everyday life. My aim is to present artistically the everyday life and its small pleasures.

My hobbies are, among others, traveling and globe-trotting and especially photographic recording of different cultures, people, expressions, gestures, behaviors, customs and anecdotal events. For me, photography is an unfathomable topic that always inspires me.
