Revolv Collective was founded in 2017 by the artists Krasimira Butseva and Lina Ivanova in the South of England, and later on it was joined by Ibrahim Azab, Lucas Gabellini-Fava, Victoria Louise Doyle, Alexander Mourant and Laura Bivolaru.

The collective was established around the idea of collaboration and collective practices within the field of visual arts, with a focal point in developing innovative ways of teaching and creating photography. Through open calls, exhibitions, lectures, discussions, workshops and publications, we have been supporting photography students and emerging photographers both nationally and internationally. Simultaneously, we have been working towards bridging the gap between early-career and established practitioners - by inviting renowned artists to participate in the collective’s events and printed matters. The collective is run on a voluntary basis and is of a not-for-profit nature.
