Photovacation Through the Years

4 Decades of History

The idea of Photovacation was first born in 1982. The event is created to gather the Bulgarian photographers, far from the eyes of the official communist authorities and the capital city. It becomes the one occasion during the year for one to experience true creative freedom and meet with almost all other Bulgarian photographers. Photovacation becomes a beloved and awaited event for everyone involved in Photography. Unfortunately, the fall of the communist regime makes it impossible for the Photovacation to be organized. For a few years the memories of the Photovacation are alive only in the memories of the photographers in Bulgaria.

Till 1995 Photovacation is reborn. This year we are celebrating its’ 25th edition. We await for You with many new ideas and many unforgettable moments to come, but with the same great atmosphere that has kept the event for four decades.
