Sarolta Bán, born in Budapest in 1982, started her career as a jewellery designer. She discovered digital photography with its endless post-production opportunities for manipulation. In reference to her work method, she explains: ‘I don’t think I am a photographer, I just like creating images.’ The time required to produce a final work varies between several hours and several days. For this artist, who is as interested in representation as in the technique to achieve it, it is not unusual to use up to a hundred or so layers for a single photograph.
In this new series, called “Help dogs with images” is dedicated to finding new homes for abandoned dogs. The images of the dogs used in this work were submitted by fans of her Facebook page and she has been commissioned to transform radically.
The end result are these imaginative compositions, which give us a very different and more positive image than we can see in other similar campaigns.
