Eugenia Maximova was born in Ruse, Bulgaria. She graduated The University of Vienna, reading journalism and communication science. Eugenia Maximova first became interested in photography in 2005 after the sudden death of her mother, a recognized Bulgarian painter.
“Looking through the viewer and pressing the camera button helped me to escape the harrowing reality of her loss, to overcome the shock and lessen the burning pain. As time passed, photography became my favored means of communication; a new outlet of creative expression, for how I felt about both myself and my perception of the world around me.” says Eugenia. Eugenia is now inseparable from her coeval Hasselblad 500 CM, traveling together around the world in search of comprehension and visual truth.
In 2010 Eugenia participated in the SEE NEW PERSPECTIVES Master class organized and funded by World Press Photography and The Robert Bosh – Foundation
In 2011 Eugenia was selected and has successfully participated in the NOOR – NIKON Master Class in Documentary Photography
