Diliana Florentin graduated from New Bulgarian University with a degree in Advertising and Art Photography. She attributes her initial gravitation towards photography to Alexander Nishkov, who served as both her mentor and educator.
To Florentin, photography is an art, and art is a form of expression. Through her photography, she attempts to capture the emotion of a single moment in time. Most of Florentin’s portfolio consists of fashion photography of women. Her photographs are brimming with sensuality and femininity. The appeal of fashion photography for Florentin lies in its modernity: the field is perpetually updating and upgrading.
Florentin shoots for Elle Bulgaria, Cosmopolitan Bulgaria, Bride Magazine Bulgaria, J’AM Magazine, 12Mag.net, OK! Magazine, Grazia Bulgaria, L’oreal, and many other prominent fashion magazines.
Her piece “Family Portraits” was awarded second place Advertising Fashion photograph in the 2013 International Photography Awards Competition. In October 2012 she collaborated with stylist Antonia Yordanova and graphic designer Petya Savova to participate in Absolut Blank Bulgaria. Earlier, in August 2011 she worked with painter Anna Panayotova to produce a mixed-media exhibition (entitled “One dream to be…”) for display at the Hilton Hotel. The display consists of black and white portraits that incorporate both painting and photographic elements.
