In your bag No: 1676 – Robert Vincze

Robert checks in to orderly reveal the people spirit stealing innards of his everyday bag.

I was born and bred in East-Hungary but currently based in London. I started taking pictures when I was 17 years old with a Chinon CS4 camera what I inherited from my father whose passion was wood carving and photography. He had a lab in the basement where I loved to spend time and see the magic he has done with light.

I like experimenting with different film stocks, vintage cameras and lenses and probably the only guy who enjoys scanning negatives. I started taking portraits and stealing people’s spirit about 3 years ago, it helped me to fight my introvert side and get to know some cool people. That time I bought my first medium format camera from an old lady, a nice Mamiya C330.

I also enjoy taking pictures on the streets where I always got lost and like to explore the local coffee places and the sights what’s hidden from the mass of tourists.
