Hungarian Photographer in the Running for 2017 World Photography Awards

Péter Csákvári, a Budapest-based food blogger and photographer, submitted his miniature still-life, entitled “Who killed the flies?”, to this year’s competition. Csákvári, who also writes for Hungarian news and culture site szeretlekmagyarorszag.hu, is the creator of an excellent food blog, Men & Tal, whose English translation you can find on Hungary Today.
