Ildikó Péter (b. 1982) graduated from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest, Hungary. She has lived and worked in Turkey, in Germany and is currently based between Paris (F) and Budapest (H).
Her work focuses on landscape and urbanism in the form of documentary photography, with topics on the transformations of society in a historical context, producing large bodies of work. She uses large or medium format depending on the subject. In the past few years Ildikó has won numerous awards and scholarships including the Goldfinger Travel Scholarship Award from the Royal Institute of British Architects (2012) and the Lucien and Rodolf Herve Photography Prize in France (2014). Her latest works include “Northern England: the Industrial Revolution Route” – a series on the industrial North of England; “Budapest 4×5” – a documentary series on her native city; and “Borders” – a study of the Hungarian borderline, since the EU admission of the country and the opening of the Borders due to the Schengen treaty. Ildikó also uses video or sound in her work. Due to commissions and having spent one year at Steidl publishers working as graphic designer, she is strongly linked to printed media, and she likes to reformulate and present her work in the form of photobooks.
