An A - Z of Photographers

Bela Doka

Born in Hungary in 1969, Bela Doka is one of the heirs of the great past of Hungarian photography. An accomplished photographer whose work has been published all over the world, he combines applied photography with artistic work and the result is a homogeneous oeuvre of socially sensitive topics with an easily identifiable attitude. His series of photographs shot in Cuba, Moldova, Romania, Burma and Russia all give visual reference and evidence of the atmosphere of the ongoing transition. He has a deep understanding of his subjects and their circumstance he strives to capture the human factor of his subjects their hopes and fears within his pictures, which gives his images a more intimate feel than pure reportage.

In Doka’s first book “The Sundays of Life” which was self-published in 2010, “we are not simply encountering a collection of images made on Sunday, but a very personal document of his own Sundays. Made in and around the rural home of his girlfriend’s family Doka’s colour photographs are gentle, reflecting and acknowledging the pace of life that he not only records but also shares — a home bathed in summer warmth, were the photographers girlfriend cycles slowly around in circles in the garden, just like she may have done as a child; her grandmother sits beneath the shade of a large tree, a cool and refreshing drink in her hand; looking past the fragrant scented buddleia, a young couple relax in a secluded corner of the garden; and a man is seen, arms out stretched, letting the fast current of a cooling stream at the bottom of the garden embrace his body. This is a place of contentment, where little happens or changes from day-to-day, as the long hot summer slowly and gently drifts by.” From the foreword by Evan Mirapaul.

“God is Everywhere” is the first of two Artists books produced by Bela Doka, came as “a vision” in Latin America – a part of the world where faith is predominantly and heavy-handedly Catholic, and its symbolism is everywhere. At every turn, one encounters Jesus and Mary, who seem to be watching over, protecting the people, who may not have much in terms of material wealth, but their faith is all-encompassing. But Jesus and Mary have become ubiquitous in a way that is already banal: they are everywhere that you can possibly imagine – and even where you never could have. The globalism takes the form of an absurd mixture of Christianity and Capitalism: it's your choice – Coke, Pepsi – or Mary? Most blatant is the pairing of Sagrada Familia wall plaques and piggy banks – with dollar-signs, of course.

In 2012 Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin won his third election as prime minister for Russia.  Despite domestic opposition and criticism from western observers and other organisations of Putin’s leadership he has mostly enjoyed considerable popularity in his country. Especially within a small group of young people in the suburbs of Moscow, the members of the VV Putin Fan Club. They idolise their president as a saviour of their country. His private life provides a role-model for these young boys and girls, he embodies the ideal politician, the strong sportsman, the perfect husband and exquisite  father-figure for them.
As a documentary photographer Doka had the chance to spend some time with these young people, gave him an inside look into their lives, thoughts, and homes. The way they follow the news about their idol, they collect t-shirts, pictures, flags and information on the object of their affection is not at all different to any other fan clubs in the world. What makes them special is the object of their devotion.

Bela Doka’s photographs have been published all over the world not just in Hungary including, The New York Times (USA), Daily Telegraph (UK), Independent (UK), Le Monde (FR), Stern (GER) & Der Spiegel (GER) to list but a few. Doka has had a dozen Solo exhibition across Europe as well as in China and the Bahamas and his work has been included in many more group exhibition across Europe. He won first prize in the Hungarian Press Photo awards 3 years running (2003-5), was a finalist in 2011 London Street Photography Awards and in 2012 was nominated for the Prix Pictet.  With his work in a growing number of large collections and with private collectors, now is a great time to buy Bela Doka’s work.
