"In times when to splurge is cool, everyone is perfect and happy forever and many artists are self-proclaimed gurus and messiahs, the photographer Milcho Pipin finds poetry where nobody cares, where nobody wants to go, where no one wants to look...Locked Up"

"I love reading Milcho's work. His monochrome structures, sharp or transgressive plots and characters staring at you from his portrait chapters, raising questions without uttering a single word. Silence is never just silence. Sceneries talk, concrete buildings tremble, announcing disturbance behind their walls, and people stand monumental and raw, with all their human flaws, scars and hopes cut open in front of you. His works grow the feeling in you that they are made for vast spaces, for extremely large formats where the highly aestheticized stories in focus would show all their might, despite the inevitable vulnerability of their subjects. "

"Milcho is a one-of- a kind photographer. He creates his artwork through his clear and utterly perceptive eye, in his personal and special way and presents it to us, the audience, so that we could experience it with the same intensity as he does. He does not let any of his photographs to be lifeless, static. Even when it comes to buildings, interiors or landscapes. He uses a well-thought-out composition where shapes, lines and tones, and sometimes colors too (he rarely uses saturation), are organized in such a harmony that they revive, through his photographs, the things that the average viewer would find boring in real life. His sense of composition, the contrasts and the excessive acuity of his photographs supplement and emphasize his personal expression, thus giving us the feeling of savoring "spicy food" which never leaves us indifferent."

"Milcho Pipin explores life through the eye of his vigorous camera…He is a passionate, curious and confident traveller on an artistic journey… The result is an artwork that speaks loudly and powerfully, telling us a convincing story about common but yet exciting people, moments and places…Each of his photographs are original and fresh, and profoundly from an artistic perspective, seen by the eye of an experienced and meticulous observer."

"I know Milcho Pipin more than half my life and he's one of my closest friends. I was very happy when I saw that all of his creative potential is channeled in the photography as a medium. I believe that Milcho is incredibly talented for "holding" the perfect moments, those that we others often miss. Naturally, I followed his development as a photographer from the very beginning until today, and I think his maturity is more than evident. In an era of hyper production and favoring clichés, I am happy that he documents honest and authentic images of life."

"Milcho Pipin is not average photographer. He doesn't take photos of others' special occasions and he doesn't wait in the forest for the perfect shot of an unsuspecting animal. No, his work is much more unique than that.
Because I am working in media industry, I will point out a few important skills he has and that are very important for us.
I love his curiosity. Fundamentally, photography is about conveying a vision in a way that it may be appreciated by an external observer. The best photographs tend to have an original and/ or unusual vision that differs from the norm. Milcho is having that subconsciously question why things are always seen a certain way, and if there are any other possible ways of seeing that might be interesting. He is open to exploring other styles, subjects and methods of photography – even if only vicariously through the work of others; inspiration can come from anywhere.
He lives for Light. If there’s no light, there’s no photograph; it’s that simple. Milcho is looking for light instead of looking for subject. I remember his sentence ..." find the light and let the subjects come to you”. He is having strong mental note to come back later at the right time of day.
He is high observant. In our cooperation with Milcho Pipin I find out that the reality is that if you’re shooting in a scenario where you can’t control all of the elements, then chances are you’ll get a shot when and where you may not necessarily expect it. He keeps his eyes open; he never knows where your next portfolio frame might come from. So, I follow his work often and I can feel that his work is set up and staged, but a good portion of his personal portfolio – including reportage, portraits and to some extent, architecture – is entirely spontaneous. I love that part of his work, maybe because in TV business spontaneous work is high qualified.
He is an artist - photographer who make conscious decisions on use of color to create emotion, for instance. Hi is having a good understanding of design, style, and esthetic point of understanding the surrounding.
He is a great person. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Milcho as he gets brilliant results every time. He is a pleasure to work with, impresses all of our collaborators on the past projects with his enthusiasm and boundless energy and, most importantly, works in partnership with us to come up with the best solutions."
