I am a Bulgaria-born, Chicago-bred, and New York city-based nocturnal creature. The spark that wakes me is my passion for photography, writing, music, the economic and political state of the world, and genuine, interesting, passionate, kind people.
When not in New York, I let my camera define my geography - from minutiae of life across the States, to that in Eastern Europe, Russia, and Asia. My clients include The New York Times, Washington Post, The New Yorker, National Geographic, Rolling Stone, New York magazine, Sports Illustrated, Newsweek, TIME, Bloomberg, USA Today, the Chicago Tribune, and Getty Images/AFP. My background in reportage and multimedia allows me to add video, reporting and writing to my photo stories.
My ultimate motivation is to create photographs that combine unique aesthetics with a strong narrative - style with content - whether in a historic or a seemingly mundane moment.
