To understand Georgi Vachev’s work, we must take a brief detour into his biography. An actor and photographer, he graduated from the National Academy of Theater and Film Arts in Sofia (Bulgaria) in 1998; he is now a permanent member of the ensemble at the Dramatic Theater in Plovdiv (Bulgaria). In 2009, he received his master’s degree in photography at the Academy for Music, Dance, and Fine Arts in Plovdiv.

Once we are familiar with his career, the subject he has chosen for these pictures seems almost obvious. His photographs reflect any actor’s greatest his life, after all, is entirely dedicated to appearing before the spectators and earning their esteem. Vachev’s photographic portraits speak of the affliction of a retired performer, who can no longer give himself up to his greatest passion acting! All of the photographs on display depict a stage actor’s retreat into his own four walls, his banishment from the stage. But has this actor really vanished from the stage, or does Vachev perhaps stage him in an entirely new way? Georgi Vachev’s photographs afford the thespian another appearance. True, it is no longer on the stage, before a live audience; but he is the protagonist of another medium in this instance, photography, which enables the actor to take the “stage” even after his death, drawing the admiring gazes of his beholders.


Den Schauspieler in Rente gibt es nicht

Um die Arbeiten von Georgi Vachev zu verstehen, ist ein Exkurs in seine Biografie nicht zu vermeiden. 1998 absolvierte der Schauspieler und Fotograf die Nationale Akademie f?r Theater und Film in Sofia (Bulgarien) und ist seitdem ein festes Ensemblemitglied des Theaters f?r Drama in Plovdiv (Bulgarien) geworden. 2009 machte er den Magister in Fotografie an der Akademie f?r Musik, Tanz und bildende Kunst in Plovdiv.

Kennt man seinen Lebenslauf, ist das hier ausgew?hlte Thema fast schon selbstverst?ndlich. Seine Fotografien spiegeln die gr??te Angst eines jeden Schauspielers, dessen Lebensinhalt daraus besteht, f?r das Publikum zu leben und von diesem wertgesch?tzt zu werden. Vachev berichtet in seinen Fotoportr?ts ?ber das Leid eines in Rente gegangenen Akteurs, der sich nicht mehr seiner gr??ten Leidenschaft hingeben kann – dem Schauspielen! Jedes der gezeigten Portr?ts stellt den R?ckzug eines B?hnenakteurs in die eigenen vier W?nde und seine Verbannung von der B?hne dar. Doch ist der Schauspieler hier tats?chlich von der B?hne verschwunden, oder wird er wom?glich von Vachev ganz neu in Szene gesetzt? Georgi Vachevs Fotografien erlauben dem Darsteller einen erneuten Auftritt. Zwar nicht mehr auf der B?hne vor einem lebendigen Publikum, aber als Protagonist eines anderen Mediums. Das Medium ist in diesem Falle die Fotografie, welche es dem Schauspieler auch nach seinem Tod weiterhin erm?glicht, auf einer „B?hne” zu stehen und von Zusehern bestaunt zu werden.

Eyes On—The Vienna Month of Photography is Austria’s largest photography festival. It has taken place biennially since 2004. November 2010 will once again be all about the photographic image—for an entire month, Vienna will be the capital of photography.
