'Along the swift current of time' is a project by London-based photographer Teodora Georgieva which brings to light what remains of the industrialised valley of Denvya in Bulgaria.

Once recognised as a beacon of hope and opportunity – now is a landscape that feels more like a forgotten wasteland – the aftermath of what was.

“In the 1950s, amidst the rise of the communist regime in Bulgaria, the construction of what would become known as the chemical valley of the country began. What was once a shining example of the opportunities and hopes of the socialist order, now lives with the consequences after its fall.

The series explores how the intense industrialisation in Devnya has affected the landscape and, inevitably, has become part of it. Large deposits resemble hills, overlooking the valley, as a turquoise river flows alongside the town, suggesting how chemical waste has woven itself into the fabric of the landscape."
