I've spent more than 5 years creating this project called "Tiny Wasteland." The series features miniature figures placed next to everyday objects in order to create the illusion of microscopic worlds.

My journey as a creator of miniature worlds started in the English Channel, on an island called Herm. I was a chef for 10 years at that time, and I really wanted to be a food photographer. That was my dream. I was traveling a lot because I also worked on a cruise ship across the world.

When I finally bought my own professional camera with a macro lens (those are perfect for food photos) I started to shoot close-ups, but I wasn't really up for bugs and flowers. One day in Guernsey I found a train model shop and I bought some miniature worker figures. I put them on a piece of moss, behind a small rock and I realized that I created a tiny world. I found myself at that moment, that was my very own world. 80% of my pictures are still food-related because I still love food like crazy.

To make dioramas I had to learn to build, and paint, so I got 2 more skills during this time.

Besides food photography and miniature world making, I also love concert photography. It used to be my first moneymaker photographer job, but now it is just a hobby. I love to be on stage in a huge festival in front of ten thousand people, but only if I have a camera in my hand which covers my face.

At the beginning of my creative process, I was ordering the mini-figures from the internet, but a year ago I realized there is a limit to those figures in the world. Last January I bought a 3D printer, and I started to make my own figures. The buildings are Faller sets, but I have to build them myself of course.

These microscopic worlds are my livelihood now. I had some exhibitions here at home in Hungary and also in Beijing, Moscow and London. I take pictures for advertisements too and I love it because it's truly challenging! It lets my works spread around the world as well.

I love these miniature things around me, and I just moved to a bigger house, so finally I can build a whole city, the real Tiny Wasteland at home!
