István Nagy was born in 1977 in Karcag, Hungary. He holds a Master’s degree from University of Debrecen, Hungary and a PhD degree in Computer Science from University of Twente, the Netherlands. Since 2006, he has worked as a scientist, with an unscientific artistic streak, in a large high-tech company headquartered in the Netherlands.
As an autodidact photographer, István specializes in fine-art landscape and panoramic photography. In his photographic prints, characterized by compositions with simplicity and sense of space , he aims to capture and convey the many moods of near and distant sceneries, be that raw, dramatic, peaceful or just simply beautiful.
Through research for new techniques and attention to lighting and detail, he is looking for new and creative ways to bring uniqueness into his landscape photography.
István’s photos have received numerous awards and nominations in international photography competitions, such as the International Photography Awards, Epson International Pano Awards and Sony World Photography Awards.
