I was 14 years old when I first took up the camera and I have not put it down ever since. 8 years later photography has become more than a passion to me - it is part of me and the way I see life. And I try to show it through my Life Stories. They range from gazing at people's everyday life to being at the epicenter of the breaking news of the day related to political events, social issues, and crisis and war.
My journey so far
In the past 2 years I have done reportages from 14 countries and I am happy to share that my Life Stories have been acknowledged and published by the world's most prestigious media:
The New York Times, The Guardian, The Times, Wall Street Journal, BBC, CNN, Associated Press, National Geographic Magazine, New York Magazine, ELLE Magazine and others.
I am honoured that my name has been ranked among the names of the best contemporary Bulgarian photojournalists, and in the last 3 consecutive years I have been awarded The best Bulgarian young photojournalist prize, as well as the first prize in the category International Photojournalism.
