Exhibition of Pulitzer-Winning Bulgarian Photographer Opens in Sofia
An exhibition of Thomson Reuters photographer Stoyan Nenov, who was among the Pulitzer winners in photography this year, can now be seen at the Czech Center in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Entitled 1/320 of the Second, it shows some of the photos he took of migrants and refugees headed to Western Europe and crossing the Balkans.
In April, he was one of the photographers to whom a Pulitzer Prize in Breaking News Photography was awarded for their coverage of the migrant crisis.
The photo that placed him into the list of winners shows a Macedonian policeman trying to stop a migrant from boarding a train through a window at Gevgelija train station, not far from the border with Greece.
Everyday life in camps, clashes with authorities and infighting among themselves, and the tough journey into Europe - these were some of the aspects Nenov sought to explore in the exhibition, which includes images from Greece, its borders with Macedonia, and the Serbian-Hungarian border.
"1/320 of the second is one of the shutter speed values at which one can capture the movement of people," Nenov has told the Bulgarian Natiional Television.
"People in motion" is also the focus of Stoyan Nenov's exhibition. Sometimes movement saves them, other times it is the only state in which they are truly themselves. It is precisely then, in this 1/320 of the second, that a human being meets another human being," organizers from Fotofabrika, an annual photography festival, have said.
