Exhibition

1/320 SECOND


1/320 Second is one of the most popular shutter speed settings. It is universal and guarantees up to 90% success in photographing people in movement. “People in movement” are also the focus of Stoyan Nenov’s exhibition. Sometimes the movement saves them, and other times it is the only state where they can be themselves. And it is then, in this 1/320 second, where one human meets another.

Stoyan Nenov
The Reuters photographic reporter is the first Bulgarian to receive a Pulitzer prize. The distinction was given to him and his colleagues from the agency photographic department headed by Yanis Behrakis and the New York Times photojournalists Mauricio Lima, Sergey Ponomarev, Tyler Hicks and Daniel Etter in the Breaking News Photography category. They received the award as recognition of their work in covering the drama of hundreds of thousands of immigrants who arrived in Europe having lost everything – sometimes including their own lives.
