The Bulgarian Icons by Lyubomir Sergeev are interesting portraits of princes, poets, monks, kings, freedom fighters, soldiers and ghans with weapons pointed towards their own bodies. Lyubomir's idea behind these captures is politically charged, and he shows his disheartened opinion about the present state of Bulgaria.

Lyubomir Sergeev created these pictures to tell the story of Bulgarian history that he believes has been gradually wrecking itself through politics, misconduct and corruption. These photos represent the fight and protest against modern-day Bulgaria, and look at the country with disappointment.

This opinionated piece depicts the end of history, and captures unexpected portraits of Bulgarian icons. Lyubomir Sergeev is a creative photographer from Sofia, Bulgaria, who specializes in photo manipulation, conceptual photography, advertising and art direction.
