The Budapest-based photographer Sarolta Ban departs from the real world to create new stories and personalities with her camera and computer. Her work consists of using everyday objects and combining them with dream-like states where extraordinary combinations produce incredible fantasies. Her work reminds me of movies like The Neverending Story.

Ban's work primarily is based on astonishing digital photo manipulation. Most of her photos are very gloomy and dark; they evoke mystery and nostalgia. She believes that her work has a purpose, which is to awake in viewers unexpected reactions and relationships between meanings and objects. She explains, "I hope that the meanings of my pictures are never too limited, are open in some way, each viewer can transform them into a personal aspect."

Born in 1982, Sarolta Ban is a young artist that believes in the power of imagination and fantasy.
