Hobby8 1000

Éva Szombat is a photographer from Budapest, Hungary. She released a “practical guide to happiness” in 2014 and has since decided to document actual people and the ways they find happiness in their own lives.

Her new book, Practitioners, highlights people and the ways they welcome happiness into their lives. The book focuses on five categories: togetherness, hobbies, pets, self-realization, and home.



Check out some photos from the project below and learn more on her website.
