  • A quotation from the introduction of József, JÁRFÁS on his mission: ‘I study in Szolnok. I live in Tiszaföldvár from my birth. The nature has been always near me, therefore I began to take photos as a hobby. My main area is the storm and landscape, however, I take pictures on the stars and the portraits. With my photos I aim to show the whimsies and miracles of the nature for the people. It is important to call the attention for that due to the change of the climate many natural ‘miracles’ vanishes. I intend to record these miracles in the neighbourhood. The majority of my photos was taken in the neighbourhood of Tiszaföldvár.’
