BHUTANESE FASHION (2002)

Right to the present day the residents of Bhutan dress according to strict rules which are propagated by the government. Bureaucrats are required to work in the traditional clothing, the gho for men and a kira for women. Until recently, citizens who dared to go out on the street dressed differently received fines. Presently Western clothing is increasing becoming available in Bhutan. As a result, life on the streets is beginning to look different. Boris Missirkov photographed a number of random clients at a photo studio in the Bhutanese capital of Thimpu, in front of the backdrops present there. BHUTANESE FASHION (2002) shows us the latest fashion in Bhutan, which mixes traditional and Western dress codes.

Boris Missirkov

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

The spread of American culture in Eastern Europe is an important theme in Missirkov's work. For The Bold and the Beautiful (2001) he photographed living rooms in which the television is tuned in to the soap opera, which by now is also popular in Bulgaria. The photographs illustrate how Americanisation slips into Eastern European societies unnoticed. At the same time the series offers a look at Bulgarian interiors and indirectly gives a picture of social life in that country.
