British photographers Vanessa Winship and George Georgiou will organize a photography workshop in the village of Mandritsa (southernmost Bulgaria) as part of the accompanying programme of the exhibition The Path as Destination, the Synthesis Gallery reported on Wednesday. Both are major names on the international photography scene.
The exhibition will be presented from May 12 to July 8 in Synthesis Gallery in Sofia. It traces the long road that Vanessa Winship and George Georgiou have travelled together, taking them from their student years in London through documentary series in the UK, Italy, Spain and India, their work in Kosovo, Albania and Serbia during the Kosovo War, as well as Turkiye and various countries in Eastern Europe and the Balkans, including Bulgaria, to their recent projects in the US.
This is the first exhibition of the two photographers in Sofia after their guest appearances at the International Photography Meetings in Plovdiv in 2014, 2017, 2019 and 2020, and at the photobook platform "PUK!" in 2019.
