Since her childhood, Ágnes' life has been inspired by the dual love of nature and art. She attended art high school, where she developed her creativity in painting, drawing and later woodcarving.
She completed her university studies as a geographer and geologist. It was almost 10 years ago that she was discovered the world of caving and mining, which changed her life completely and continues to hold her captive to this day.
She started caving as an exploratory researcher. These new discoveries, untouched places never before seen by humans, motivated her to learn photography in the extreme studio of the caves, to show this underground wonder to those who could not see it with their own eyes.
Her photographs aim to draw attention to the hidden wonders and vulnerabilities of nature, as well as the spirit of mutual trust, team spirit and togetherness that are rare in today's world.
Her photographs have been used as illustrations in scientific books (Cave and karst scenes of Hungary), articles (National Geographic Magazine (Hungary), Life and Science), calendars, albums, conference presentations, solo and group exhibitions at home and abroad, TV shows and lectures.
About "The Realm of Eternal Darkness in Invisible Light"
People believe what they see. However, our eyes can only perceive a narrow range of light. In the realm of eternal darkness, deep in the earth, the only source of light is our lamps.
But what if we illuminate our surroundings with light that we cannot see? As a result of being irradiated with energy beyond the range of visible light, many living and non-living things show a completely different face. They glow in the dark. This phenomenon is called luminescence. The luminescence of minerals is a well-known fact, sometimes a defining characteristic.
In showcases and exhibitions, we can often admire minerals in UV light, but far fewer people see them in their natural environment, in mines and caves.
Imagine how the world you know shows a completely different face when you turn off the light! As your eyes get used to the darkness, the minerals on the walls glow like millions of stars or glowing embers in the light of the UV lamp, as if they were conjuring up the world of Pandora or the stars of the Universe around us! Come with me to this unique world!
