For Ivaylo Stoyanov the surrounding world is the subject of his work. Expressive colours, strong contrast, electrical tones and heavy shadows makes it a surreal landscape. The photographer do not examine the nature, but converts it, rotating it in 90 degrees. Thus, a seemingly simple architecture, natural landscape or interior lives another life. Nadezhda Dzhakova, Curator.
