When the bad weather scatters the tourists, when you lose yourself in the narrow corridor-like streets, when the night falls with its silencing blanket, then you realize what it is to be in Venice.
Venice, the city that everybody has heard of, known as the „city of love“, is now being deserted by its people. With a population of 120,000 in 1980, today it is in half and continues to decline. Until 100 years ago in this miraculous place quietly lived and worked great musicians, artists and writers. Today the city looks more like a film decor, filled daily with unimaginable crowds of tourists. And while it is still not clear whether the city is really sinking, on more and more buildings a sign appears saying “Vendes“ – „For sale“.
For a period of fifteen years, I had the opportunity to visit Venice three times. These pictures are made under the impression of a city, that nowadays difficultly and inorganicly tries to connect its name with the romantic and the innocent.
Delyan Georgiev was born in Sofia in 1982. He started dealing with photography in 1996 as part of the school curriculum. During high school he participated in several school exhibitions. In 2010 he graduated NATFA „Kr. Sarafov“ with specialty ‘Cinematography’ in the class of Prof. Jacek Todorov. Thanks to his encouragement and support, he rediscovered his love for the art of photography.
By profession he is a cinematographer, but after adopting photography as a hobby, he takes pictures of all his travels around the world.
