Recently, the internet found out that András Arató fell and broke fingers on his right hand. So who is András? Andras István Arató is a retired Hungarian electrical engineer and model. Best known for becoming an internet meme, András has been in and out of the stock photo and advertisement industry as a model since disclosing his identity. He's now known worldwide as "Hide the Pain Harold"
The photo came from a shoot I’d done a year earlier when I was still working as an electrical engineer. A professional photographer had got in touch after seeing my holiday photographs on Facebook. He said he was seeking someone like me to be in some stock images. Over two years, he took hundreds of pictures of me for photo libraries.
