The Last Project
Shavarsh Artin Palabikyan was born on May 12, 1948 in Sofia. He is among those who laid the foundations of modern Bulgarian photo journalism fusing unique artistic style with reporter’s dynamics and grasp of the moment. The Bulgarian reader remembers his images in the Otechestvo magazine, the Continent and Democracy newspapers and in many other publications. Until the very last moment Shavarsh worked for the new political Leader magazine. The school of successful photoreporters, which Shavarsh legated, has created a distinctive style in the press and took leading position in all central newspapers and magazines, Bulgarian and international agencies.
In June the portraits from the unfinished project of Shavarsh Artin – Shami, one of the greatest names in Bulgarian photo journalism, will be exhibited as part of the “Month of Photography”
