📷 Portrait by Nishimoto Kyōko
My name is Peter Orosz. I write stuff and take pictures. I live in Tartu, Estonia. My family name is pronounced “O-ros” — it’s the Hungarian word for “Russian”, which I am not. This website is where I publish my work.
I’m walking across northern Japan and writing a series of dispatches from the road called Human Again.
A photo-book about re-thatching a medieval farmhouse in the hills north of Kyōto, Japan’s old capital, in October 2019.
A book about a five hundred kilometer walk across Shikoku, the smallest of Japan’s four main islands, in January and February 2019.
A visual field diary of a 4,300-kilometer walk from one end of Japan to the other, in the spring and summer of 2017.
Pictures from a three-month journey in Iran and Iraqi Kurdistan, including an 850-kilometer walk across the Zagros Mountains, in the spring of 2016.
My new — and old — photos are posted on Glass.
