Hungarian students have been occupying the campus of the University of Theater and Film Arts for over a month. Their #freeSZFE movement has became something much bigger than what the authorities expected. On the 9th of September, thousands of students and supporters formed a human chain in Budapest, reaching from the University to Parliament Building, protesting against government takeover of the 155 years old institute. Since then, the red and white ribbon has become a symbol of solidarity in Hungary.

I am passionate about photography - taking pictures of our everyday lives can be a wonderful and exciting journey itself.
