The Slovenia Times

Pulitzer-winning photographer's work on display in Ljubljana


Among the exhibited pictures will be the Pulitzer-winning shot of a group of refugees making their way to Europe on the outskirts of Brežice, near the Slovenian border with Croatia will be put on display.

Živulović was part of the photography staff of Thomson Reuters which won the US journalism award along with their colleagues from the New York Times for pictures of the European refugee crisis.

Also on display until 1 September will be another awarded photo, a shot of a group of female workers fighting for bread only two years before the collapse of Yugoslavia. In 1989, Živulović won the prize of the Yugoslavian press agency Tanjug for the shot which in fact depicts the beginning of the end of the country.

Živulović works for himself first, regardless of who the client is, art historian and critic Iztok Premrov said.

Živulović says that all he creates is in fact a journalistic photo. Photography to him is "exclusively taking notes of events and thus keeping them in memory in the photographic way."

The photographer was enchanted by photography at 13 years of age when his father bought him his first camera. Živulović worked for the daily Delo for years, while he has been collaborating with Reuters since Slovenia's independence war.
