BULGARIA-PROTESTS

In this segment you will see six portraits of people participating in the protests against Plamen Oresharski’s government in 2013. From the very beginning the people gathering in front of the Council of Ministers were called words like vagabonds, unemployed and illiterate. Every night, the messages by the Ministry of Interior about the amount of people in the procession were misleading and inaccurate. I decided to pick eight of the frames that I had made during the protests out, and see who those people captured by the camera really are. I wanted to present them not only in their role as protesters, but also show them in their everyday life. I managed to get in touch with seven of them mainly through Facebook and help from many friends there. Everybody apart from one agreed to meet me.
