14 September – 14 October 2022

Venue: Municipal History Museum, Tsarevo, 12 "Peneka" St.
The works of first-year students, pursuing the Master's degree programme in Photography, whose searches are related to their work with classical photographic techniques and approaches in urban and studio environments, constitute a separate part in the exhibition. They manifest their individual preferences expressed through the medium of photography. As part of their studies, the students themselves participated in the curatorial selection for the current exhibition. As is, the exhibition is a finished material in the format of modern digital high-quality photo printing, suitable for moving exhibitions in Bulgaria and abroad.
The exhibition presents the results of the September 2021 plein air forum–Summer Photography Academy, which took place at the Creative Complex of the National Academy of Art (Greek School) in Ahtopol. The exhibition participants are students from all academic degree programmes of the Academy, who use photography as a means of expression to create art. The techniques they apply are diverse, strictly individual and free in terms of choice. The organiser of the plein air forum, whose programme includes practical activities, lectures and discussions, is the teaching team of the Master's degree programme in Photography at the National Academy of Art. The exhibition reveals the broad scope of creative imagination of the plein air forum participants, who rely on their own sense of time and place, and individual approach to the theme Sea and a different photographic method. The photographs clearly reflect the personal impressions of the ten-day stay in the seaside town.
