Adél Koleszár (1986) is originally from Hungary, where she graduated with a Masters in Fine Art Photography from MOME after receiving a BA degree in Social Sciences in Budapest and studying photography in Portugal. She focuses on marginalized groups, with specific interest in their mental, cultural, and living conditions. She travelled to Mexico City as part of a half-year artist-in-residence programme, and has now been living there for more than two years. Her works have been created with the help of artists’ residency programmes and scholarships. Her most recent project, for example, was sponsored by the London-based organisation IdeasTap, along with Magnum Photos. This November, she won the 1st prize at the Budapest Portfolio Reviews.BACK TO PHOTO
