The choice of the period for the creation and installation of the exhibition is not random - it was specially prepared so that the Bulgarian citizens could enjoy it both during the elections for the National Assembly and the European Parliament on 09.06.2024 and afterwards. The exhibition gives an additional aesthetic appearance to the already completed central facade of the embassy, ​​turning it into a cultural highlight for all visitors.

Alexander Ivanov's photographs present a unique photo journey through the picturesque and impressive aerial shots that the author took, flying hundreds of kilometers with a motorized hang glider over different parts of Bulgaria. For 17 years and over 500 flight hours, Ivanov managed to capture all possible colors of the four seasons, from the Black Sea, through the Rose Valley to Rila and Pirin, including the emblematic corners such as Perperikon, Belogradchik rocks, Tsarevets and the ancient Thracian sanctuaries.

The photographer has been awarded dozens of prestigious awards, including the honorary statuette of the Academy of Photography and two first prizes from different categories in the National Geographic - Bulgaria competition. His works have participated in over 20 solo exhibitions in Bulgaria and abroad, have been presented in a number of European cities, as well as in the Council of Europe and the European Parliament.
