My project investigates the intersection of masculinity and Bulgarian identity. The context of this project is deeply personal to my own experience, and as a result I wanted my work to be rich, revealing and vulnerable. I wanted to depict the young Bulgarian male subjects whose identity is infringed upon by ideas of masculinity and ‘Bulgarianess’, but who maintain a sense of individuality and personality in spite of these external forces. The project has been developed in Sofia, Bulgaria, using medium format camera.
