Viragvolgyi Istvan

I worked as a photo editor and the head of photography for Origo the then leading Hungarian news portal before joining MTI Hungarian News Agency as head of photo desk. Then I joined the Robert Capa Contemporary Photography Center as deputy director responsible for professional affairs. Now I serve as the secretary of the prestigious Capa Grand Prize Hungary that was founded by the Capa Center overseeing all operations of the contest leading up to the awarding. I am also working on independent exhibition projects as a freelance curator.

I am omnivorous but I am particularily interested in long term documentary projects (not only photography but multimedia too) even more for ones concentrating on Eastern Europe.
