Cold Memories

photography & words – denitsa toshirova
location – 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.

A note: Each month, we update our site as part of our efforts to reduce the environmental impact of our digital estate. The global emissions from the digital industry are on a par with those from the aviation industry, at almost 2% of total global emissions. What’s worse, this is increasing year on year. In an effort to lessen our impact, each month we delete previous features and update our site with new content. Throughout the month, our current features are available to download or save for free to all boom saloon members, allowing you the chance to hold onto your most treasured stories and collections. This particular feature can be downloaded by our members here before it is updated at the end of April.
