As a migrant from Bulgaria, living for many years now in Western Europe, photographer Hristina Tasheva was shocked by the way nationalist groups in her home country were allowed to hunt down refugees from the Middle East who tried to find a safe place in the European Union.
While reading newspaper reports many questions came up: what provokes one’s fear of foreigners, what is happening in Bulgaria where 2 million emigrants left for a better life elsewhere, what connects us as people?
Hristina Tasheva collects photographs from different sources and mixes them with illustrations and handwritten notes in her first and self-published book ‘In Belief Is Power’.
PhotoQ Bookshop is happy to host the launch of her book, on Wednesday 23 January, starting at 6 pm. Feel free to join the party. We will have a talk and there will be bites and drinks.
