Along with the Photon Gallery, the Galerija Fotografija (“Photography Gallery”) is one of two private galleries specialised in photography in Ljubljana. Established in 2003 and located in the first floor of the medieval house in the old Ljubljana centre, the gallery popularises high-quality photography of established Slovene and international authors. In addition to annual exhibitions the gallery also organises lectures, screenings of master photographers, and project presentations. The gallery entered the international art market in 2009, participating in the Viennafair, and since 2010 in the Paris Photo fair. Since 2005 the Galerija Fotografija annually holds at least one charity auction.
The recent programme has been dedicated mostly to presenting international established artists such as Helmut Newton, Paul Serrada, Angelika Sher, Roger Ballen, Wilhelm Heiliger, and Sarah Moon.
The gallery also features the works of Slovene authors. Those featured have included Tihomir Pintar, Žiga Koritnik, Bojan Radovič, Neca Falk, Marko Jamnik, Matjaž Krivic, Sibil Slejko, Jože Suhadolnik, Tomo Jeseničnik, Joco Žnidaršič, and Bojan Brecelj.
Galerija Fotografija also prepares curated group exhibitions. One of the first was the exhibition Today About Yesterday featuring the great names of Slovene photography such as Stojan Kerbler and Dragan Arrigler. In 2006 the most prominent international names of photography history were shown on the exhibition entitled Art & Photography (Archipenko, Chagall, Christo, Kandinsky, Matisse, Miró, Picasso, Rauschenberg, Soto, Vasarely, Warhol, Wesselman, Doisneau, Klein, Modotti, Newton, Taylor-Wood, Sieff, Wegman and some others).
The Galerija Fotografija represents many artists, among them are established and promising Slovene photographers. At its very first attendance of an international art fair in 2009, the Galerija Fotografija presented two Slovene established photographers at Viennafair: the legend of the Slovene photography Stojan Kerbler and some decades younger photographer Boris Gaberščik who was also featured at the VU Gallery in Paris in 2012.
The gallery’s online bookshop offers numerous catalogues, photo related publications by Slovene publishing houses as well as some foreign publishers (a representative of the Steidl Verlag in Slovenia), posters, postcards and special editions.
