ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER:
Penko Skumov is a photographer and graphic designer from Sofia, Bulgaria. Born in Burgas in 1978, he grеw up in Pomorie on the Black Sea coast. He has studied art history and cultural studies at New Bulgarian University in Sofia. He is a co-founder and member of the photo group Naos. Between 2001 and 2009 they have organized and participated in many photo exhibitions. His photographs are published in “Mirna”, “Christianity and Culture”, “Svet” magazines, in issues from Omofor publishing house etc. Since 2015 he works especially in street and documentary photography genres.

Lecturer at BECA (Before Creating Academy) since its foundation.
The exhibition presents over 100 works by 13 Bulgarian photographers, taken in 2020, during the 100 days of anti-government protests in the streets and squares of Sofia. The selection includes reportage and documentary photos used as an illustration of the protests in many of the major European and global information channels and media like Reuters and France Presse as well as several personal projects implemented in the typical style of the authors.
The exhibition is curated as 13 separate photo stories - a document of today's reality and events. Every photograph, every sealed minute, is a kind of cry of dissatisfaction, a desire for change, carrying in itself the emotion and charge of the moments and the people it reflects.
And who else but the photographer can work better with time, minutes, seconds - the exposure time becomes a strong author's position and so 144,000 minutes.
It is a photographic document and at the same time a form of spiritual search and statement of each of the authors in an attempt to capture the energy of the events every minute.
Monochrome Hub VLC. Gallery is pleased to present 144 000 Minutes: a charity group exhibition which benefits two causes: the financial aid for the protests in Bulgaria and a scholarship program for a young photographer at BECA - Before Creating Academy. All funds raised from the sales of the artworks, the authors and the gallery will donate to the causes of the project. Each photographer chose the cause for support and accordingly indicated where to donate the proceeds from the sale of his works.
