About Peter

Portrait of Peter Orosz ๐Ÿ“ท Portrait by Nishimoto Kyลko

My name is Peter Orosz. I write stuff and take pictures. I live in Tartu, Estonia. My family name is pronounced โ€œO-rosโ€ โ€” itโ€™s the Hungarian word for โ€œRussianโ€, which I am not. This website is where I publish my work.


๐Ÿ”ด Live in 2022

Iโ€™m walking across northern Japan and writing a series of dispatches from the road called Human Again.
