Exhibition ‘Five Portraits’ by Bulgarian photojournalists opens at National Gallery on March 8

An exhibition entitled “Five Portraits”, by Bulgarian photojournalists, opens at the National Art Gallery – The Palace in Sofia on March 8 2018 and continues until April 4.

The photographers whose work is on show are Mladen Antonov, Dimitar Dilkoff, Nikolay Doychinov, Boryana Katsarova and Yana Paskova.

“The Five Portraits exhibition brings together five of best Bulgarian photojournalists working for global information agencies. Their works stand out in the avalanche of news and images in international exchange, and yet this will be the first time they will be showcased in Bulgaria with the focus they deserve,” the organisers, FotoFabrika, said on their website.

Five Portraits is an opportunity to see the different trends in the art of photography and the different choices the photographer is making in each individual case, the statement said.

“Any attempt to generalise and systematise the work of the five artists would be superfluous and misleading. The images are what really counts. And they boldly take the spectator to various parts of the geographical and spiritual world, unmasking our fear of voicing our sincere attitude to what’s happening around us, making us proud or ashamed, making us ask questions about ourselves and the others, questions we often avoid answering.

More details about the photographers are available at FotoFabrika’s website.

The National Gallery – The Palace is at 1 Knyaz Alexander Square, Sofia.
