Join Couchsurfing to see Orsolya’s full profile. It’s free!
hold out my face in the wind or the rain or the sun - it's all good
My official name is Orsolya and my friends call me Bogi or Orsi. You'll find all these names along my profile which refers therefore to one person.
I am basically a photojournalist. I moved to Paris to do my master degree and I studied at Paris 8 University in the Contemporary Art Faculty. Today I work as a freelance photographer, graphic designer and webmaster.
I also show my personal photographic work regularly in solo or group exhibitions and I'm participating in academic researches about the theory and history of photography.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
In my opinion CS is part of a way of thinking which I appreciate a lot; sharing, learning, participating, and being open to new experiences.
This is the way of living I try to follow in every-day life: I use car-sharing, I use vélib (bike-renting system in Paris), I listen to Tilos Radio (which is a Hungarian community radio station), I put a high value on recycling, etc.
And when I can, I host CS members in my place, and I show them around in the city..
photography & contemporary art, films,
jazz and music in general (I used to play in different instruments, now I don't have many occasion any more, but I wish to start it again...),
good wines, good food, ...
- graphic design
- contemporary art
Music, Movies, and Books
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've seen the Danube, the Mosel, the Spree river, the Seine, the North Sea, the Ontario Lake, the Balaton Lake and the Mediterranean Sea in different times and lights.
Wish to go on with rivers, lakes, seas and oceans.
Teach, Learn, Share
I learned how to share and how to love without expectations thanks to CS and my surfer-friends from Hungary. I wish to have it with me all the time and be able to forward it to you.
