Cold Memories

photography__denitsa toshirova | berlin__germany

Bulgarian born photographer and visual artist Denitsa Toshirova lives between two countries at opposite sides of Europe. In her photographic series Cold Memories, she utilises this existence to explore the idea of a new beginning in a foreign land. What does it mean to live away from home? What is home? Where does one belong? Combining digital and analogue photography shot between Edinburgh and Bulgaria, the diptychs which form the series explore both the alienation and reconnection from and with the past.
