Photographer and Artist
Traveller, artist, visualizer and a self-taught photographer who is taking the world by storm; it wouldn’t be wrong to call this high-school dropout the Einstein of photography. Adam has successfully invented a new technique of photography which allows him to take high-resolution photos of speeding trains and passengers in the subway and turn this footage of seconds into minutes, allowing his audience to get a slow glimpse into the fast-paced human life.
Born in Hungary, Magyar started taking pictures in his late twenties. A traveller at heart, he wandered through Asia and captured images of Indian street vendors, holy men, and students. His work evolved rapidly from conventional documentary photography to surreal, radically experimental imagery that reflected his obsession with finding innovative new uses for digital technology.
Magyar has with his latest invention, managed to bend the conventional representations of time and space, stretching milliseconds into minutes, freezing moments with a resolution that the naked eye could never have perceived.
