About Me

My name is Alex Manchev, I am a fine art photographer capturing the wildness, raw beauty and freedom of female nudity. In my work, I hope to move away from merely depicting the female body as a visually appealing and sexualised object. Rather, I strive to empower women, so that they act as independent, multi-voiced subjects. I see the nude, uninhibited body as the ultimate form of character expression, able to convey emotion in a single gesture. I view it further as capable of liberating both the sitter and the viewer, as their lived physical experiences inform each photograph I frame, continually placing it in a novel context.

For now i was mainly shooting in Sofia, Bulgaria and Saint-Petersburg Russia, but now i want to travel trought Europe and show the independence of women trought my art work.

I am thinking to move to Paris or Berlin where i think the climate is more creative. If you are interested you can look at my works here:

I had one exhibition in Sofia and now want to show my works all around the world so if you have any ideas i would be happy to hear them.

See you soon, Alex :)))
