Kata, an ex-teenage movie star and widely published editorial photographer from Budapest lands in Melbourne aged 21 in the hope of a big adventure leaving a fancy photography job offer, her family and friends behind.

Unexpectedly decides to stay in Australia and embarks on a colourful trip of a lifetime which leads her all the way to Sydney. Life now includes a partner in crime, a teenage monster called Bruno and a 40kg rescue mastiff cross who was meant to be a lapdog.

The joy of making images, finding beautiful secrets in the shadows, and exploring life stories are still the biggest driving forces of her work and career. In recent years Kata has been working as an art director as well as a photographer.
