Top 10 Slovene Photographers

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” — Aaron Siskind
Logarska Dolina, or the Logar Valley, by Tomo Jeseničnik
While the vast majority of the world’s seven billion people have not yet had the opportunity to travel to Slovenia, thanks to all of the incredible Slovene photographers working today, pretty much everyone already knows that Slovenia is the most beautiful country in the world! That might perhaps be a slight exaggeration, but without the talent and hard work of the ten photographers listed below, as well as many of their colleagues, it wouldn’t have been possible to publish THE Slovenia Book or any of our other projects. Narrowing the list of worthy candidates down to only ten was no easy task, but it had to be done. Without further ado, we present our selection of the Top 10 Slovene Photographers. ANDREJ TARFILA In 2016 Andrej won the Sony World Photography Awards in the Travel category, but he is a true jack of all trades when it comes to photography, working in the areas of press, sport, events, landscape and much more, always trying to find and expose hidden messages that would otherwise be invisible to the eyes of ordinary observers. www.andrejtarfila.com ARNE HODALIČ The photographer and photojournalist Arne Hodalič is the Photo Editor for National Geographic Slovenia and an Associate Professor of Photojournalism at the University of Ljubljana. His work has been published around the world, he’s held numerous exhibitions and he’s also the author of several photography books. www.arnehodalic.com DAN BRIŠKI Dan is an expert outdoor photographer. He specialises in mountain-landscape, outdoor-sports and wildlife photography in the Alps and spends most of his time in the wilderness searching for the right lo- cation and waiting for the perfect light. www.danbriski.com JOCO ŽNIDARŠIČ Joco Žnidaršič was awarded the title of excellence in art photography (EFIAP). Beside his work as a press photographer he published numerous photo-monographs which have brought him a reputation as one of the most prominent Slovene press and art photographers. He has received more than 50 domestic and international awards.
