What I like the most is the opportunity to be relaxed, spontaneous, to keep my senses constantly open.

More for the artist

I am a Sofia resident who was born in 1966 and I have been teaching Exhibition Design in the specialty of Design in Advertising in the National Academy of Arts, Sofia for 26 years. This telephone story, like any other, began quite by accident. It began one night, on the armchair. Playing with my newly acquired smartphone and thinking about the advertising attacks we are constantly subjected to, I decided to check what can be “squeezed” from these devices in terms of photography.

I would like to point out that in the years of analog photography, when my classmates were actively attending photography clubs, I preferred to play football. So sitting on this armchair in the hotel room I was living in at the moment, I noticed in front of me a table lamp and a very interesting light. I pointed the phone and that’s how it started. Gradually, the initial curiosity became a lasting interest, and later a passion – but mostly in fun. A constant, daily fun that provokes me, makes me happy and I hope, develops creatively.

Then followed a period of experimentation, mistakes, disappointments, enthusiasm and discoveries. I learned a lot. What I like the most is the opportunity to be relaxed, spontaneous, to keep my senses constantly open. And to make this “phone story” fun, it occurred to me that when I’m shooting with a phone, the post-production could to be done with that same phone. So, everything you see is created in my personal smartphone.

I hope you like it!
