Amazing monochrome photo manipulations by Tamás Ambrits




“So who is Tamás Ambrits? You can say that he was a photographer in the dynasty and his father was a member of the more than 100-year-old Sopron Photo Club, so he – at his own discretion – was already at my childhood in the fixer and caller and admired that under the magnifying glass. He got his first machine from his father, and then the second one, which was a good Zenit machine (still today), with a basic optic and a 135 watt. After a while, photography took him mostly family photographs, but when the 2000 In the years, Christmas, Easter and Summer holidays were on the same coil, it was time to get a digital camera. This period was a time for many people to come back to photography.

Affordable digital cameras and more and more advanced IT processing programs have also given the impression to those who felt that they did not have the time to do the lab work that was previously necessary for photography. Then, of course, they were trapped, as digital imaging has opened up a wide range of opportunities to relieve simple image capture by spending more time with Photoshop than their fathers in the darkroom.

This was also the case with Tamás Ambrits. A new world was opened in front of him, in which he was able to create – or perhaps to draw him from his soul? – a surreal world that gets stuck and unfolds. “I like to stripping the theme, converting motifs into symbols, and compiling the sometimes uncompromising parts into new messaging and creating new content,” says his working method. In 2005, he invited his members to work on the works of the Sopron Photographers Circle, thus he was able to show his works on stand-alone and joint exhibitions. He has won numerous awards at national and international competitions and has been awarded the prize at the Hungarian Photo Artists’ Association in 2012. I would add that this is a big word because I know the Alliance is very careful about not letting amateurs in the ranks despite the increasing popularity of photography.”
