Artist's Statement:

"I am a photographer from Eastern Europe. I live in Bulgaria, a country more than 1,300 years old. For the artist location is not important. In art photography it is the view point which matters. Every object may turn out to be a masterpiece of art photography... if you succeed in finding the true viewpoint."

"Since my early childhood, I have been trying to find the abstract appearance in ordinary things. Lights and shapes are constantly stimulating my imagination, creating thousands of images. It is my desire to transform them into pictures which other people can see and understand."

"In my early twenties, I spent a lot of time sailing on my, homemade yacht . Sometimes photography took second place, but it was never left behind. I had to grow up in order to understand the words of an older lady, a staff member of The Photographer's Gallery - London, I was so young and foolish, that I do not remember her name. I shall nonetheless remember her words forever: "Young boy, you must take photos and do nothing else. Whatever else you do, it is waste of time for the world art photography". This was in London, in 1992...I had to reach the age of Christ to comprehend what she meant."

"Now, I want to bring all my images to life and to share these pictures with other people, but I am not and do not want to be a commercial photographer. Unfortunately, sometimes I have to sell some of my "creations", so that I can create new ones. Thus, all my life is devoted to art photography."

"Living in Bulgaria helps me to find my unique viewpoint, which turned out to be my life point."

Reviews of Nick's work:

"Each time we return to your site we are amazed. We prefer two simple words to describe you: different and fantastic. You clearly deserve a larger audience."
Arthby's Corp 28 Jul 2002

"Nick prefers to pursue his work as an art form rather than a commercial commodity. Using a Nikon F5 Nick has created some striking images and has graciously agreed to share them with our readers. His work shows a zest for life and an ability to capture the very spirit of his subjects."
Photo-Pro 1 Jan 2002

"Nick Chaldakov has a special way of seeing the world A unique and individual style which is so recognizable in the work."
Steve Bicknell 19 Dec 2001

"Once a week I visit your site to see if you have added new prints, I always admire your fine art prints, however you don't put the technical details for your prints as most people want to follow your example in taking picture. These days you don't find a photographer with such diversification as to utilizing all methods of photography. Enlighten us with some example details as late "Ansel Adams" did."
Sajjad A.Al-Lawati  Sultanate of Oman 3 Nov 2001

"Nick Chaldakov's work in the photographic medium is far above the average. As a frequent visitor to his website and galleries, I often discover new, thought provoking images during my recurring visits. Without a doubt, Nick Chaldakov is one of the best photographers of his kind in Europe."
Larry Davis 18 Dec 2001

"Today Nick is an active professional photographer participating in exhibitions around the world."

"A very creative and insightful look at the art photography world in Bulgaria."
CalumetPhoto 16 Jul 2000

"Nick's ability to make a great image out of an "average" subject, through abstract impressionism, sets him apart as a master in this field of the medium. Several of the images presented in Nick's Profotos portfolio are representative of this high level of abstraction, which adds another level to photographic image representation." 8 Jul 2000

"Is Nick Chaldakov the best photographer in Europe? This photographer is just too good to miss!"
