— Why did you decide to become a freelance war documentary photographer and to cover conflict zones' life?
— I've always wanted to tell stories from a war zones. For me the biggest power of photography is the documentary value that this art possess. Bulgarian medias just don't send journalists to a real war zones, so I've decided to go on my own. I took 2 weeks "vacation" from the media where I work, and went to Aleppo. I didn't tell anybody. When I came back to Bulgaria my story from Aleppo became very famous. Then I realized that it's not necessary some big media to send you to a war zone. Then I went to Donbas region and started to sell video reportages to the biggest television in Bulgaria. I think that the Bulgarian medias just can't take the responsibility to send a journalist to a war zone and I understand that. My daily job in the media where I work is to cover any kind of news and cultural stories like: business interviews, press conferences, big rock concerts, session of the parliament or speeches of the president. When I see opportunity to cover story from a war zone I take my gear, take couple of free weeks from my job and go to a war zone as a freelancer, then I start to sell my stories. As an advantage in this way I have the creative freedom to tell the story I want.
