The Jazz Photography of Sánta István Csaba

A selection of black and white photos from Budapest and elsewhere

Sánta István Csaba was born in Transylvania, Romania, in 1978, then moved to Budapest, Hungary, in 1999, where three years later he finished photography school. Today he is an accomplished jazz photographer whose work has been shot and published around the world.

Csaba explains why he prefers black and white photos. “For me the mood that jazz transmits comes through most vividly in photos without color, just pure black and white. It’s kind of like the piano keyboard.”

JazzTimes is pleased to present this sampling of Csaba’s work, with more to follow shortly.
