Peter Puklus

Based in Budapest, Peter Puklus is currently completing his DLA (Doctor of Liberal Arts) studies in photography. In his photographic work , storytelling plays a substantial role. Puklus attempts to link what he calls “general history” with the individual stories he sees captured in quotidian objects. Compiling trivial items — a piece of fruit, a pair of speakers, tulips atop a washing machine — he suggests, encourages reflection on the way the mind creates stories. The Hungarian photographer is also experimenting with other media such as sculpture – playing with everyday objects and visual conventions to capture life in its essence.
