Alexander Acosta Osorio
Alexander Acosta Osorio Born in Colombia, 1980
Alexander is a graduate of Journalism and Mass Communication from the American University in Bulgaria. He works with digital media: multimedia journalism, blogging, photography, video, film and the web. Alexander also studied fine arts at LaGuardia Comunity College at The City University of New York- CUNY.
During his time in New York City Alexander developed a range of work in different media that finally lead to his predominant interest in photography. In his body of work Alexander explores the relationships we have with the objects that surround us and with the situations we find ourselves in every day. He is interested in how these relationships change the way we perceive ourselves, and consequently, the way we look at things.
Today, Alexander is in a new stage of development in Bulgaria.
"When I first came to Bulgaria I was amused by this vibrant, emblematic, and fascinating country. Living here and experiencing their customs and traditions first hand has helped me to observe beyond the surface and interpret visually the magic of Bulgaria and its relationship with other member states in the EU. Now I live here and record life the way it’s presented to me. It’s indeed a discovering process. In my photographs I recollect the Bulgarian experience in its colorful tonalities, uniqueness, and enchanted mood."
