In Hungary, it was in the 19th century that clearcutting became widespread and common, when a large area is cut in one step. Natural forests have developed the most complex ecosystem. It's easy to see the drastic changes that can be caused by clearcutting, when forests disappear within days to weeks. A complex habitat is effectively lost, which not only results in the disappearance of the vast majority of animal and plant species, but also fundamentally alters the climatic and soil conditions of the area.

I took my first photo when I was 11 years old. Now photography is my favorit hobby and also my passion. My main subjects are street, portrait and socio photography.
