    Szabolcs Ivan

This series of photographs is from the Lido, Paris: a highly acclaimed cabaret show which is steeped in history and has been running for more than 70 years. The images are a glimpse of the rarely seen behind the curtain moments, showing a unique perspective into backstage life, as well as the spectacular scenes from the show.

I am a travel and documentary photographer. I was born in Serbia and completed my studies in Hungary and Finland, gaining a degree in journalism and photography. Having travelled the globe, my continuing passion is to photograph extraordinary people. I visually document their stories, by capturing everyday life whilst delivering an intimate perspective drawing in the outside observer.
