When they hired me at Playboy Hungary, they gave me total freedom to come up with ideas. I was attracted to the Romani nomads and I had, from my childhood, a picture that I wanted to capture. In fact, a series of about 10 pictures, an editorial. The main photo was supposed to be with a very young Romani woman with long black-blueish hair, dancing next to the fire. The girl is semi-dressed, her neck and abdomen uncovered, her leg shown out of a colored skirt while dancing. In the background, a wagon, warm light of a fire and lanterns hung from the wagon. Next to the fire is the old ”bulibașa”, skinny, with a large mustache and a long pipe in his mouth.
He loves the beauty in women. He received the name Pinto Horse from a North American Indian, and he uses this name to sign photos ranging from nude to studio or product photography.
