Rock-cut Monuments in the Eastern Rhodopes
The start of the „Rock-Cut Monuments“ series was given in the autumn of 2009. Then I was walking along the plateau of Belintash sanctuary. The Sun was slowly setting to the west. Suddenly I noticed that the elongated shadows of the rocks draw a symmetric shape I have missed so far. The low lighting „produced“ from the rocks the volume of anatomically engraved vulva representation. This happening invoked the idea that light conceals one of the keys to unraveling ancient mysteries. I started taking images of the rock monuments at night when through local lighting I emphasized on elements that are virtually invisible in daylight. Gradually, with the development of the project I started adding interesting day images to the night ones.
As of the moment, the Rock-Cut Monuments in the Eastern Rhodopes series comes up to about 50 images.
