📷 Portrait by Nishimoto Kyōko
My name is Peter Orosz. I live in Tartu, Estonia. My family name is pronounced O-ros — it’s the Hungarian word for “Russian”, which I am not.
I’m currently walking around all of Japan. You can follow my journey here.
An upcoming 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.
From a walk across northern Hokkaido, in August and September 2022, the second stage of my walk around all of Japan.
From the 500-kilometer walk across Shikoku in January and February 2019 that became the subject of The Wilds of Shikoku.
From a 4,300-kilometer walk across Japan, in the spring and summer of 2017, the first stage of my walk around all of Japan.
From a three-month journey in Iran and Iraqi Kurdistan, including an 800-kilometer walk across the Zagros Mountains, in the spring of 2016.
Many of my photos are what make my visual field diaries visual: they are parts of the diaries themselves.
