Emil Rashkovski is a visual artist based in Sofia, Bulgaria.
His work includes outdoor, documentary and conceptual photography, research, installations; focusing on the impact and connections between the environment and the marks we, humans, leave behind. Emil likes to rediscover the surrounding world through his lens and vice versa - to develop his photography under the influence of the environment. The process involves long study of themes, repeated exploration of locations, selection of specific conditions. Emil reinterprets the environment and frames it in topics such as past-present-future, consumer society, alienation, ecology. He is focused on human relationships and the surrounding world. Emil’s goal is to provoke thinking and discussion about how we, humans, should coexist and balance with the environment.
