I Give You My Face Portrait Project takes us back to a fortten tradition of giving each other photos with messages. In today’s digital world, these precious memories that people used to keep in their wallets prove unnecessary. This project includes 24 portraits which Tihomir Stoyanov selected among hundreds of similar photos found at the flea market. These photos taken between 1930 and 1991, proof not only of moral values and the socio-historical context, but also of aesthetical changes in portrait photography.

Tihomir Stoyanov was born in 1978 in Sofia. He graduates in Photography from the Technical University. In 2015, he established Imaginary Archive, a Bulgarian archive of found photography, which includes more than 10,000 negatives and slides. In 2017, he was selected for “Bring Your Own Paper” at the Les Rencontres d'Arles Festival in France.
