Izložba fotografija BULB Kolektiva iz Bugarske

Festival fotografije VIZUALIZATOR

 

BULB KOLEKTIV je udruženje fotografa osnovano od strane Mihaila Moskoliosa 2015.godine, koje danas broji 52 člana iz Rumunije, Bugarske, Turske, Grčke, Crne Gore i sa Kipra. Fotografi BULB-a intenzivno se bave visoko estetičnom urbanom i ruralnom fotografijom. Dele istu viziju koja se sastoji iz težnje da svojim neorealističkim fotografijama obuhvate sve kontradiktorne aspekte života na Balkanu i pritom pružaju različite perspektive, što celokupnom radu Kolektiva obezbeđuje neophodnu polifoniju izraza.

 

BULB Kolektiv učestvuje u projektima na Balkanu i šire, izlaže u evropskim galerijama, sarađuje sa lokalnim i stranim foto-klubovima, organizuje radionice i seminare i objavio je mnogobrojne foto-knjige. Jedan je od glavnih organizatora Festivala ulične fotografije PhoS u Atini, Bukureštu i uskoro i u Sofiji.

 

Izlagali su na nekim od najprestižnijih festivala street fotografije, od čega posebno izdvajaju učešće na Festivalu Street fotografije u Majamiju i učešće na konkursu za najbolju street fotografiju ASPA u Algeru.

Publici VIZUALIZATOR-a BULB Kolektiv će se predstaviti fotografijama članova iz Bugarske:

 

VentsislavLalev, diplomirani marketinški stručnjak, fotografijom je počeo da se bavi ne bi li napravio kreativan predah od svog svakodnevnog radnog okruženja . Posebno se interesuje za boje, oblike ljude i tragove ljudskog prisustva u svom okruženju, a svoje fotografije smatra vizuelnom reprezentacijom svakodnevne realnosti. Nosilac je druge nagrade na takmičenju street fotografije „Mi, ljudi“, održanog u galeriji FOTOSINTEZA, najprestižnijoj galeriji u Bugarskoj.

 

Martin Iliev, diplomirani filmski režiser, master producent i ulični fotograf, rođen i odrastao u Sofiji. Režirao je nekoliko kratkih filmova, spotova i niz reklama za neke od najvećih klijenata na Balkanu. Fascinira ga gradski život, a ulice ga istovremeno privlače i plaše. U svom radu posebno istražuje gradski život Sofije, gde je rođen i odrastao.

 

Penko Skumov, istoričar umetnosti i kulturolog po struci, aktivno se bavi grafičkim dizajnom i freelance fotografijom. Bio je jedan od osnivača i član grupe fotografa Naos. U periodu od 2001. do 2009. godine grupa je

organizovala niz izložbi fotografija i okupila mnogobrojne mlade umetnike filmske i analogne fotografije. Njegove fotografije su objavljivane u magazinima „Mirna“, „Hrišćanstvo i kultura“, i „Svet“-u, kao i u izdanjima „Omofor“ izdravačke kuće, a izlagane su u Bugarskoj, Rumuniji i Grčkoj.

 

Svilen Nachev, rođen u Svištovu i interesuje se za fotografiju još od tinejdžerskog doba, a street fotografijom počeo je da se bavi nešto kasnije. Član je BULB-a od 2017. godine i finalista je najprestižnijih festivala street fotografije- u Majamiju, Atini, Rimu i Briselu. Osvojio je prvu nagradu na konkursu BG Press Photo 2017. godine i nagradu za humanitarnu fotogtafiju "Shavarsh Artin“ za svoj foto projekat Persin“.

Za njega, fotografija predstavlja strast, uživanje i beg od običnog, sredstvo dokumentovanja života i samoekspresije.

The BULB Collective has been founded in January 2015 by Michail Moscholios after inviting 5 Bucharest based photographers to join him. At the moment BULB consists of 52 photographers from Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece and Cyprus and Montenegro, active in urban (and rural) photography with an expressive shift to include highly aesthetic and poetic images in their assignments.  They share the same vision but not the same perspective which gives the necessary "polyphony" in their extremely ambitious endeavor to cover all the aspects of the Balkan neorealism.

Their visual signatures aspire to create iconic images and to be the best in metamorphosing and interpreting all aspects of life in this highly contradictory and fascinating part of the world. The BULB Collective holds projects in the Balkans and beyond, exhibitions in European galleries, assignments in cooperation with foreign and local Photo Clubs, workshops, residential seminars, publishes photo-books etc.

 

In 3 years, among other projects, BULB published four over a 100-page books and held many international exhibitions.

In 2017 BULB was featured collective at the one of the most prestigious festivals about street photography in the world - Miami Street Photography Festival 2017. In 2018 the collective was featured at ASPA – Alghero Street Photography Awards.

BULB Collective is one of the main organizers to PhoS Street Photography Festival in Athens, Bucharest and in very soon in Sofia.

“I’ve been appreciating photography in all of its forms as long as I can remember, but never thought to try and take pictures seriously until 3 years ago. Needed a break from my working environment,  something to keep me moving in a creative way. I’m mostly interested in colors, shapes, people and signs of human presence in my surroundings. I look at my pictures as a visual representation of every day reality. They don’t have special meaning or hidden message. Of course every rule has its exception.”
