Help-Portrait - a shift in thinking
In Budapest there were 48 photographers and I don't know the real statistics, nearly 150 people came to this event to Budapest Sportarena.
These photographs are taken by me because I'd like to show other people the feeling and I hope you can feel it, how wonderful to give and waiting for nothing, those people haven't got enough money for Christmas to buy a camera or pay for colour photographs in a photo store.
I know it's too much for those, who has four or five children and I talked to them how they're living from only one salary. There were women living at a "mother's home", because they divorced or had to leave their husband, because the way of his living.
But they are so happy and the children like them so much, I was shaken when I heard these stories, but I really know and I feel they have a beautiful soul and they are in safe, their heart is full of love and warm.
I’m invisible now.
Just a human being.

I was glad to hear about this initiative and perhaps it will serve as a wake up call to some photographers who tend to be too much occupied with their own egos. - Mr Urbano
