György Stalter
(b. 1956)

Stalter György is a subjective documentary photographer who began taking photos during his student years at the Franciscan school in Esztergom. After completing his high school education, he obtained a vocational certificate in photography and worked as a photojournalist in the press. Starting in 1990, he worked as a freelance photographer. In 1995, he established his own photography studio and, in collaboration with Gábor Kerekes, taught photography for more than 20 years under the title "Art and Craft."

Together with his wife, Horváth M. Judit, he spent years photographing Gypsy settlements in Hungary and urban areas in Budapest that were evolving into ghetto-like neighborhoods. Their joint work led to the creation of the photo album "Más Világ" (Another World) in 1998, and the material was exhibited in various locations in Hungary, Europe and the USA.

For many years, he captured the vanishing microcosm of the eighth district of Budapest. In 2006, he won the Budapest Photography Grant from the Pro Urbis Foundation for his "Jó...Józsefváros" series in the MÚOSZ Press Photo competition. This project resulted in the publication of the book "Város a városban" (City within the City) in 2010. In 2011, he received the Moholy-Nagy Grant, allowing him to photograph the diverse Berlin-Neukölln district for three months. His photo album "Régi/Új képek" (Old/New Images) was published in 2019.

Stalter György has exhibited his work in numerous solo and group exhibitions, both in Hungary and abroad. He is a recipient of the Balogh Rudolf Award and a member of the Hungarian Association of Photographers.
