Joy in Marjan Ciglič's photographs

Feb 15 - Jun 2

The first of the events to mark the centenary of the birth of Marjan Ciglič (1924-1998), a prominent Slovenian photojournalist, an admission-free exhibition at Ljubljana Castle takes visitors on a tour of his joyful photographs of people in different settings.

Among other things, Ciglič was an extraordinary portraitist. His mastery is reflected in the genuine emotions in his photographs, which are a combination of skill, foresight and connection with the person in the photograph. He portrayed people on both happy and sad occasions.

The main event to mark the centenary will be an exhibition at the National Museum of Contemporary History later this year to showcase Ciglič's life and work.
