Nandor Lang is a freelance photographer based in Budapest, working worldwide.
Having a degree in photography and more than 25 years of experience, Nandor gained knowledge in several areas of photography. He is specialised in advertising photography, architectural photograph and studio/on-location portraiture. Nandor works both in field assignments and in his studio, which is located in Óbuda, the 3rd district of Budapest.
In the last few years he started an art-project named “LAYERS OF TIME”, the frames of which can be viewed in the sliding gallery on the main page. These images give prominence to visual impact over narrative context, trying to show the theme from an aesthetic point of view, rather than documenting the raw reality.
By using multiple exposure technique, instead of catching moments, Nandor tries telling stories, that cannot be told with a single frame. He strives to portray atmosphere and emotions that the surrounding world evokes, capture the spirit of a place, show how the light and other elements of the scenery change over time. A double exposure image, composed of two or more shots, is always a kind of flight from reality and a departure into the unknown. It enables him to capture a vision in a unique and very personal way that cannot be easily reproduced.
