The BULB Collective has been founded in January 2015 by Michail Moscholios after inviting 6 Bucharest photographers to join him and it presently consists of 41 photographers from Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Greece and Cyprus, active in urban (and rural) photography with an expressive shift to include highly aesthetic and poetic images in their assignments. ​They share the same vision but not the same perspective which gives the necessary "polyphony" in their extremely ambitious endeavour to cover all the aspects of the Balkan neorealism.

Their visual signatures aspire to create iconic images and to be the best in metamorphosing and interpreting all aspects of life in this highly contradictory and fascinating part of the world. The BULB Collective holds projects in the Balkans and beyond, exhibitions in European galleries, assignments in cooperation with foreign and local Photo Clubs, workshops, residential seminars, publishes photobooks etc.

In 2 years, among other projects, BULB published two over a 100-page books and held two international exhibitions.
