Baker

Baker is a photographer born in Germany, and raised in the UK. He spent time running an independent record label and producing art shows before finding the path of photography. Today he is captivated by people, he derives great pleasure in connecting with new people and listening to their unique stories. His biggest inspiration is traveling the world and finding stories in local environments. Today we share his series, Baths of Budapest.

The series ‘Baths of Budapest’ is the result of a melting pot of inspirations; the vague memory of a photograph of the Szechenyi baths seen years ago but remembered because of the amazing characters. A love of architecture and Nikolai Bakharev’s beautiful and intimate portraits of bathers on the Russian beaches/lakes from the 1980’s. Baker wanted to combine those inspirations with an intention of capturing the relaxed and self assured postures of characters who have been frequenting the baths for a lifetime.
