Petia Angelova, a visionary artist whose lens paints stories of abandonment and nostalgia, intricately weaves poetry into her minimalist compositions, inviting viewers into the depths of her emotive landscapes.

Born and raised amidst the rich cultural tapestry of Plovdiv, Bulgaria, Angelova's formative years were colored by the nuances of diverse landscapes and histories. Her soul, imprinted with the echoes of past lives, found solace in the art of photography much later in life, spurred by a serendipitous encounter with a camera in 2017.

For her, photography transcends the mere act of capturing images; it becomes a medium through which stories are whispered, each frame a stanza in the poetry of existence. "A photo is not just a picture," she muses, "it tells a story, maybe different for everyone who looks at it." With each click of the shutter, she delves deeper into the recesses of memory, seeking narratives hidden within the silent echoes of forgotten places.

Her artistic pilgrimage often leads her to solitary sojourns, traversing landscapes scarred by the passage of time. In the quiet desolation of abandoned buildings and forgotten alleyways, Angelova finds inspiration aplenty. For her, abandonment is not merely a physical state but a visceral connection to the past, a repository of memories waiting to be unearthed.

"I have always found the past and what it hid fascinating," she reflects. "The traces in the places that are now left say so much that I would like to convey, but I have never had the ability to do so in words." In photography, Angelova discovers the language she has long sought—a visual lexicon that speaks volumes without uttering a single word.

Angelova's work transcends borders, resonating with audiences across continents. Her photographs, adorned with a quiet elegance, have graced the walls of esteemed galleries and garnered accolades in international competitions. Yet, for Angelova, each accolade serves not as an endpoint but as a catalyst for further exploration.

In a world awash with noise and chaos, Petia Angelova's minimalist aesthetic offers a respite a sanctuary where silence speaks volumes and poetry unfolds in the spaces between light and shadow. Through her lens, she invites us to embark on a journey—a journey through the corridors of memory, where the past converges with the present, and the mundane is transformed into the extraordinary.
