Karol Kállay entered the world of Slovak photography in his own way. In 1942, at the age of sixteen, he won his first award (the gold medal for first place) for his photograph entitled Asfaltéri / Asphalters at a national competition. In 1950, he definitely decided to devote his life to photography, and he began to work as a freelance photographer and travel the world. The characteristic feature of his photographic style was his sense for the dynamics of life, directness, the Bresson-like moment. He never went to extremes, and he was an excellent observer. He was an eternal searcher and admirer of beauty, and he unmistakably felt and captured the emotional states of others like a seismograph. He impressed others by his noble and gentlemanly behavior.
