Behind the camera
Andi Balogh is a Hungarian photographer based in Espoo, Finland, she moved to the land of thousand lakes in 2009. The nature and culture she met through northern metal music drove her to learn Finnish language and move to Finland. Her biggest inspiration is the Nordic ambience, the aesthetics, melancholy and the unique feeling through nature enthuses her to create photos.
Through photography she interconnects the external nature with the inner realities involving the feminine human form. Depicting visions and feelings by emphasizing the calmness, deep connection with nature and the constructive force in way the northern atmosphere has affected and affects her.
Her aim is to radiate the oneness and a kind of tranquillity, etheric and uplifting feeling. When the viewer is immersing into the image, it would as much be a healing therapy to the viewer as for the artist during creating.
Andi mostly utilizes herself as the object/subject for photos to create not only landscape photos, but different inner worlds. She is enthusiastic about traveling and hiking for capturing the spirit of northern nature and the personal emotions, perceptions and experiences. Her favourite place is Lapland.
In addition to creating her personal images, she is doing collaborations and commission works with other creatives.
