Boris Gaberščik

Boris Gaberščik was born on 28 September 1957 in Ljubljana. While still a student at the Department of Biology of the Biotechnical Faculty of the University of Ljubljana, he developed a fascination for photography under the influence of his friend T. Prošek. He became a member of the Photo Club of the Alpine Association of Slovenia, where he continued to develop his photography under the guidance of V. Simončič. He also maintained friendly contacts with J. Kološa – Kološ, who staged his first exhibitions. After receiving his BSc degree in 1985, Gaberščik devoted himself entirely to photography. In 1986 he obtained the status of a freelance artist and began his professional career as a photographer, under the tutelage of M. Zdovc. He has had a number of solo exhibitions at home and abroad, and participated in numerous group exhibitions and workshops. His works form parts of private and public collections (Museum of Modern Art, Ljubljana, The Talum Collection, Kidričevo; The Department of Slovene Photography, the Gorenjska Museum, Kranj). His photos have appeared in over 150 monographs and catalogues of Slovene artists and in numerous brochures, catalogues, annual reports and calendars. He has received several awards for his works, which have been presented in publications in Slovenia and abroad. He also writes essays and other texts. He lives and works as a freelance photographer in Ljubljana.
