    Gold in Architecture / Buildings

In his series, “Lighthouses”, Vladimir Spassov makes “portraits” of the now disappearing seaside navigational lights between Ahtopol and Shabla. These sites are doomed to disappear due to the availability of modern technology and satellite navigation. The project includes the oldest Bulgarian lighthouse, located in Shabla, the lighthouse of Cape Maslen, which looks akin to a medieval fortress, and the lighthouse of Kavarna, which is very similar to a flying saucer. Some of the navigational lights are inside military bases and one of them is in the royal residency of Evksinograd.
