Geometry of Light

The Skyline as Seen From Below by Bulgarian Photographer Mariyan Atanasov

The last time we spoke to Mariyan Atanasov, it was about his enigmatic portrayal of Borisova Garden in his home country of Bulgaria. We were spellbound with his playful capturing of light, shadows and fog.

In his recent series, Geometry of Light, Mariyan’s stunning architectural photography puts the viewer right at the bottom of the action. Looking up to the sky in Sofia, Bulgaria, we can appreciate all the interesting, geometrical shapes that buildings make against the backdrop of the sky. We caught up with him again to find out more:

The Plus: What is the inspiration behind the name Geometry of Light?
Mariyan Atanasov:
I don’t know actually, I really like to shoot buildings and shadows, and just decided to shoot both of these things in a project.

TP: Why black and white?
MA:
I think that in black and white, the abstract and architectural photography works better, it tells more about the detail.

TP: What do you hope people feel when looking at these?
MA:
To feel that the light can transform in any shape, there is not borders for it.
