Full Frontal Flash proudly presents Svilen Nachev. Bulgarian master photographer with a flash in one hand and a giant African land snail in the other.
Tell us a bit about yourself. I am 42 years old, Bulgarian, married with 3 children, we’ve got 6 cats, a mini hamster, a giant African land snail and many fishes 🙂
When did you start with photography and more importantly when and why did you start to use a flash? I’m interested in photography since my teens but start shooting the streets in 2011 first in BW. Then in 2017 I decided to start shooting in colour and since 2019 I shoot with flash everywhere and anytime. This decision came to me like a challenge for myself and is inspired from some great photographers that use a flash like Weegee, Mark Cohen and Lars Tunbjörk.
Could you describe your photographic style? My style is to shoot with my heart and to select with my brain.
I can’t say what I’m looking for in photography. I’m trying through the reality to show the invisible, the unreal, even the spiritual.
Show us some of your flash photos and tell us something about them
Thank you very much!
