Most of my childhood was spent at my village called Kmetovtsi, near my hometown Gabrovo. Everytime I return to Bulgaria I visit this place and spare moments with my grandmother. She likes telling me stories about the village and the people so I decided to capture an ‘event’ that occurs a couple of times in the week. People get delivered bread simply because there isn’t a shop in the village. While waiting for the bread the old people spent some time reading magazines and newspapers in a communal area. The building has got a library, also full of archive albums with photographs of the village and its people.
Venislav Petrov is a 21 year old photographer born in Bulgaria and now living in England. His approach explores documentary and street photography concentrating on people’s emotions. A key factor within his work is to get as close as possible to his subjects and be part of their lives while photographing them.
