The King of the ForestAbout this photograph
Evgeni Dinev's photographs seem to have emerged directly from his imagination, given the surprising natural worlds they present, with their spectacular and fantastical dimensions. Although Bulgaria only occupies 2% of European territory, it is blessed with a surprising diversity of landscapes, a temperate climate, a rich variety of plant species and an abundance of mineral springs. Before the photographer's lens, this environment makes an entrance, dazzling us like a harmonious ballet. Magic wins over reality, striking colours penetrate isolated valleys, light carves out rows of trees and mist veils mountain ranges, introducing us to small corners of absolute paradise. In order to obtain these poetic points of view, Evgeni Dinev plans out his expeditions to the rhythm of the seasons while perfectly mastering photographic technique.Read more Read less

Evgeni Dinev was born in 1976 in Bourgas, a port city in Bulgaria, located on the edge of the Black Sea on the Balkan peninsula. His passion for landscape photography began when he was a teenager, thanks to the dark room he built for himself. This self-taught photographer owes his talent to his patience and determination to capture increasingly striking images on his travels. From his native country, on the borders of Europe, he has roamed mountains and natural wonderlands that change with the seasons, in order to find the right light to reveal the enchanting and pictorial aspects of nature. Transforming an ordinary point of view into a grandiose panorama, he compares himself to an artist at an easel, seeking to paint a picture by very carefully selecting his palette of colours. In Dinevâ€™s view, the magic and beauty that infuse his images are made possible by being in the right place at the right time.
