Dora KONTHA

1987, Budapest - Hungary
Lives and works in Copenhagen
Represented by TOBE Gallery since 2018
  • Dora Kontha’s work focuses on inner and outer landscapes involving various analog processes and experimental techniques. While investigating the artistic and technical possibilities of film photography, her photographs evolve towards inner journeys, the visual translation of emotions and abstract representation of actual places. Dora’s work has been exhibited in museums and galleries and featured in international publications.
