PEPA HRISTOVA
FREMDE IM EIGENEN LAND
MUSLIMISCHE MINDERHEITEN IN BULGARIEN
24.02. - 20.04.2008

 

What are European values?

On the search an "European" understanding of values, photographer Pepa Hristova approaches the muslim minority in her home-country Bulgaria. Her intense images of festivities as marriages or circumcisions are breaking the speechlessness of the "stangers in their own country". Her images tell about the regular daily life, about identity and the loss of the roots, about the dignity and values of a fringe group. In this reportage Pepa Hristova evokes her view on continuity and change. She brings hidden emotions to the top and translates the seen and found for our eyes. Hereby she transmits her lust on discovery and reflexion to us the spectators.
