The Photography of Ilia Varcev
Born in Bulgaria and educated in Czechoslovakia during the Communist isolation of Eastern Europe, Ilia Varcev pulls from the tradition of European masters like Joseph Sudek and Andre Kertez, leavened with the vision of American photographers Walker Evans and Harry Callahan. His aesthetic is documentary in nature, but graphic in design. Black and white values reinforce the formal elements of his photographs, unifying images of various content, taken over many years. Whether dizzying, bucket-crane architectural views of modern skyscrapers, political rallies, public celebrations, intimate vignettes of his Eastern European homeland, or simple people on the street, Varcev's photographs internalize his external reality, giving us a glimpse of the structure and meaning of a world in motion.
