About Me

My name is András Bánkuti,
I’m a photoreporter.

My story, too, started in the Soviet Union, in Leningrad (now once again called Saint Petersburg as it was in the past).

My father had a Hungarian scholarship to Leningrad university and met my mother, a student from Alma-Ati in Kazakhstan, there. They got married in 1957 and started a new life in Budapest. I was born here in 1958. I went to Moscow several times in my childhood and with my grandparents to Alma-Ati. I remember we were there several weeks once and by the time we got home, I could hardly speak Hungarian. I am interested in the Soviet world and its people and though I consider myself Hungarian, when I step onto Russian soil, I do not feel that I am among strangers.
