András Dobi

Country: Germany 🇩🇪

My name is András Dobi, I’m a fine art photographer, born in Hungary. Currently, I live and work in Munich. In my photographic work, I see every element as equally important – from concept creation to printing the final image. For me, an interesting image starts with a strong idea, which is the reason I spend lots of time forging unique concepts to be the basis of my projects.
I come from the field of performing arts, as I was trained as a professional ballet dancer and practiced my profession for many years. During the last couple of years of my dance career, I mastered the technical aspect of photography and was able to combine my artistic approach with photography. My future plan is to explore the world of art photography and set my own artistic signature. I’m eager to apply contemporary elements of the theatrical look to my creative process so as to create a unique look to my style.
My interest in the arts started when I became a student at the Hungarian Dance Academy at the age of 10. There, I studied not just dance but fine arts and visual arts as well. I became a professional ballet dancer and danced for many years in different countries. A few years ago, near the end of my dance career, I started to search for a new medium through which I would be able to express myself after my “stage years”. As I experimented with photography, the realization came quickly that it was a more abiding form of art than dance, which opened up a whole new dimension with numerous possibilities for me in the field of art.
Since I don’t dance anymore, I only focus on photography. My main interest is pointed towards creating artistic concepts and then turning them into photographs. As a constantly moving person, dance photography stayed on the horizon of my interest, and from time to time, I’m more than pleased to capture the most beautiful movements – dance.
