When I first saw the evocative work of Bulgarian photographer Ivaylo Petrov in his series “Portraits of Shame,” I was immediately captivated. The series is a collection of images depicting Bulgarian athletes inside their training center in Vidin. The most startling aspect of the project, as I came to learn, is that these are not creative images in some nostalgic urban decay environment – these are photographs inside an active training ground that’s still in use today.
I wanted to know more about the project and Ivaylo’s passion behind it, so I decided to ask him some questions.
