Michael Nguyen was awarded the Günther Klinge Culture Prize of the municipality of Gauting (Munich Metropolitan Area) for special achievements in photography. Mayor Dr. Brigitte Kössinger hands over the medal to photographer Michael Nguyen.

Since 1980, the municipality of Gauting has awarded the Günther Klinge Culture Prize, endowed with 3,000 euros, to individuals or groups for outstanding cultural achievements who are connected to the municipality of Gauting through their life and work. It is named after the entrepreneur, patron of the arts and honorary citizen of Gauting Günther Klinge, who died in 2009 at the age of 99. The public award ceremony will take place end of July 2022.

Michael Nguyen photographed in Gauting among other things a series about the outdoor swimming pool Gauting. Nguyen immersed himself in a fascinating world of water reflections. American documentary photographer Maggie Steber said about Nguyen's series "I really love the series of swimming pool pictures one after the other".  

The Gauting outdoor swimming pool was reserved exclusively for the Olympic athletes in August 1972. Mark Spitz prepared in this pool for his 7 gold medals and world records.
