I’m a contemporary photographer, poet, writer and editor in my Bulgarian native tongue. At a young age, I became interested in photography. I wanted to be in front of and behind the camera, as I was already participating in movie and television productions.
I am interested in both theories of time. One is that time flows linearly in our physical world. The other is metaphysical – that everything happens at the same time. Photography as an art is also relevant to the time.
For me, it is not an immediate record of reality, a testimony, but a process that I go through myself. First, while shooting, then while editing, and finally, if necessary, to manipulate the images. I do it until I find that vibration that is in tune with the emotion I want to express.
As a photographer, I have participated in several group exhibitions in Bulgaria (2015-2018) and in Venice, Italy – an accompanying exhibition at the Biennial of Architecture. My works were displayed at the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts as part of the 2019 Annual Member Show and Benefit Sale.
Recently I published my first photo book “The Speed of My Life” based on my poem about early emotional loss. I have published both poetry and prose for academic and online articles in my country. In 2012, I won the Mediterranean Women Forum with a short story. I am the editor of the first book released in Bulgarian about the artist, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, as well as translating upcoming issues of Cyril Christo’s poems about Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s projects.
