Miss Bistra Stoimenova

My name is Bistra Stoimenova and I am a 27-year-old young woman from Bulgaria.

I graduated from BA in English Philology at Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski in 2015 and I am currently pursuing a second BA in Cultural Studies and an MA in Translation. I am a person of versatile interests, ranging from languages and science to photography and creative writing.

In 2009, I discovered the world of photography and today, 9 years later, I have been working as a photographer for 4 years now and I am pursuing an MA in Photography at Falmouth University, UK.

I have been part of the Executive Board of the National UNESCO Club for Scientific Expeditions (NCSE-UNESCO) – Bulgaria since November 2016 as the organization’s photographer-in-chief. In June 2017, I took part in a two-week expedition in Southern Bulgaria, part of the Friends of Bulgarian Treasures project, to capture the cultural and historical heritage of the area. Currently, I actively participate in all projects of NCSE-UNESCO initiatives.

Last year I created the Culture Crossroads project because I wanted to change the perception of the Balkans as a tourist destination and thus promote cultural heritage and sustainable forms of tourism. Apart from my work for NCSE-UNESCO and my personal project, I am also the managing director of an online photographic magazine, Capture Mania and I am a member of the Association of Professional Photographers in Bulgaria.
