This project is about the dream of freedom. I'm re-enacting Vantzeti's life, who left Bulgaria during the communism (1988) and spent his life in New York (1990-present). He escapes illegally from Bulgaria with the manuscript of his book The Seeds of Fear for the Belene concentration camp. Lately, he goes back to his rural, small village in Bulgaria and spends more time to repairs his mother's property. My goal is to realize this project as a photo book, which also includes photos from the personal archive of Vanzetti, pictures from the state archives of Bulgaria, and texts by both of us.
