The idea for Self-portraits predates the dramatic events of 2020 with the onset of Covid-19, the measures against the epidemic, the social isolation and the vast civil rights movement. After this year’s events, Dimitar Solakov adds yet another segment of equal importance. Once again, his self-portrait is in the center of the universe, which despite the physical distancing regulations has its own rules of moving around. The main difference now is the masks and the quantity of disinfectant. The interaction between man and nature continues to be as complex as it has always been. The preoccupation with nature and its „submission“ is just an illusion evoked by our short lifespan.
