A little bit about me

14516402_1300100353334629_9115619612968226002_nHi! My name is Peter Varga, I’m a photographer from Budapest, Hungary. I moved to Dublin nine years ago, and I guess it feels like this city is my home now.

The whole idea of the page started out as a photography project inspired by Brandon Stanton of Humans of New York.

I have to say, almost instantly I fell in love with it. At first, it was very challenging to approach random strangers on the street. I would go around and around the same block until I gathered the courage to approach someone. But after a while, it became more comfortable and now it’s second nature. There are days when I straight away do a great interview, and I get a beautiful portrait with it, and I just can’t wait to get home and post it. Through this, I’ve met so many lovely humans and I’ve had the honour of listening to their wonderful stories. I don’t need to walk hours for a great story, there are so many around us and we walk by them every day not knowing. I’d like to be the person who opens some of these stories for YOU.

You, our partners and awesome audience, are the best part of this, who give me constant feedback and necessary support to keep the page growing.

I hope you love and enjoy the page and I will keep showing Dublin to you through my lens.

If you’d like to discuss working with us and creating great projects, drop us a line: peter@humansofdublin.ie, we would love to hear from you.

Thanks for reading,

Peter Varga
