Prayer for home


In 2022, the shores of the Black Sea in Bulgaria and Romania became a protection place for thousands of Ukrainians fleeing the war. I invited those who were willing to appear on camera to say prayers for their home. The sea that was separating them from their dreams ceased to be a mere background and transformed into a temple. Like a cold God, it responded to their prayers with its silent wisdom. Suddenly, everything hidden beneath its still surface was losing meaning and ceasing to exist. The world was shrinking toward the horizon, and life was no more as we knew it — home and identity disappeared beneath the water. All that was left in the end was a single person standing on the shore.


The project has been realized with the financial support of The National Culture Fund of Bulgaria.
