ABOUT BULB COLLECTIVE:
The Bulb Collective has been founded in January 2015 by Michail Moscholios after an Open Day held in Bucharest. Since 2015 the collective has widened its geographical scope and in early 2020 had more than 50 photographers from 6 countries in the Balkans.
The photographers are active in urban (and rural) photography with an expressive shift to include highly aesthetic and poetic images in their assignments.
They share the same vision but not the same perspective which gives the necessary "polyphony" in their extremely ambitious endeavour to create iconic images and to be the best in metamorphosing and interpreting all aspects of life in this highly contradictory and fascinating world.
