Bulgaria Two Views Photography Exhibition
Over the past two years I have been developing a Photography Exhibition entitled “Bulgaria Two Views. The idea is to present the country of Bulgaria from two perspectives. The first is that of a native Bulgarian and the second a visitor. I chose Dragomir Bogomilov to represent one perspective. I selected him because he is Native born and has a strong background as a photojournalist. Dragomir (Drago) has shot images for National Geographic on three different occasions, documenting ancient archeological digs in Bulgaria. He also photographs events and the like for Bulgarian media. This gives him a unique perspective which served well in the overall intent of the exhibition. The second point of view is mine, as a visitor to Bulgaria and an artist, which I believe offers a differing frame of reference. Drago and I each contributed twenty photos for a total of forty images showing the varied cultures, history, flora and fauna, and the people of Bulgaria. At the time of this post, the exhibition has already been successfully shown in Bulgaria in the cities of Ruse and Plovdiv. July 1, 2018 it will open in the National Museum of Bulgaria. In the near future Velingrad and Sopot will also host the show. Closer to home, the Covey Center for the Arts in Provo, Utah and the Utah Cultural Celebration Center in West Valley City, Utah have both offered the exhibition with great results. Additional cities are on the horizon, stayed tuned to see what the future holds.
