Árpád Zoltán BALLA photographer-artist was born in Transylvania and has been working there ever since, in a remote and hidden angle of Europe, midst the high hills and deep valleys of the Carpathians, somewhere between earth and sky. He describes through his photos the home land, - which has preserved its intact nature even in these days - with people keeping the traditions of hundreds of centuries, living close to the nature and struggling for their existence with ardent devotion. This is the community of the photographer, projected and presented through the soul and eyes of the artist.
Árpád Zoltán BALLA was born in 1957 at Székelyudvarhely, Transylvania, Romania, where he has presented several exhibitions since 1975. Balla is the member of the Association of International Photographic Arts and of FIAP (Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique). In his hometown he founded and chairs the Photo-Basis Association. The most significant, recent exhibitions of Árpád Zoltán BALLA are as follows: Thoughts about Brightness, 2016: The Central Palace of Szabó Ervin Library, Budapest, Hungary.
