Lajos Petho

My father, Lajos, was an electrical engineer and a keen amateur photographer. He was mostly interested in the technical side, he even created his own developers, (one, a mono-bath that could develop and fix film in 30 sec).


He liked to see the irony or humour around him, and dreamt of being a photo-journalist; the first image in this set was one of his favourites; Eisenhower and De Gaulle at Orely airport; Dad talked his way through security to get this vantage point away from all the official platforms for photographers.
