About me

Ivan Pastoukhov was born in Sofia, Bulgaria, in 1951. Coming from a family of intellectuals and scientists, he graduated in medical engineering and worked for ten years at the Sofia Medical Academy.

A freethinker, with an independent mind and a passion for discovery, Ivan Pastoukhov found his way to the other side of the iron curtain. In 1984 he settled in Paris.

Art, philosophy, psychology, different sports all close to nature, 20 years of wine business, Ivan travels, meets people and develops a broad and manifold vision of the world.

Ivan keeps his free nomad’s mind in our world of perpetual mutation. Living is to be born at every moment, what his photography is trying to grasp.

« I am seeking for beauty, to see signs, to read and to share them. To capture life at any time. »
