This exhibition presents a selection of works by the photographer Diego Andrés Gómez, born in 1961 in Buenos Aires, a student of the Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and television (AGRFT), former photo-reporter at the weekly magazine Mladina and co-founder of the Manjana photographic studio. Diego passed away in 2005.

The curator of the exhibition is Mrs Sonja Lebedinec.
The works are divided into three thematic sections.

The first section comprises a reportage about refugees travelling from war to safe territories (black and white originals, 50×60 cm) shot in summer 1992. These photographs reveal a subtle social commitment and are technically perfect.

The second section includes photographs shot during the war in former Yugoslavia. Some of them were included in the monograph Deset dni vojne za Slovenijo (The ten-day war for Slovenia) and exhibited in Novi Sad, Berlin and Buenos Aires.

The third section of photographs will be projected on our gallery’s walls as a sequence of slides showing various photographic materials included in the monograph dedicated to the author.
The exhibition is accompanied by a presentation of the monograph Diego Andrés Gómez, conceived as an overview on the photographer’s life and career. The book is edited by Botjan Botas Kenda, Sonja Lebedinec and Meta Krese. The authors of the texts are Maja Weiss, Sonja Lebedinec, Lora Power, Ali erdin, Boris ibej, Silvo Devetak, PhD., Joe Suhadolnik, Ervin Hladnik Milhari, Uro Hoevar and Primo Lampič, PhD.

All the proceeds from the book are intended for Diegos two sons, Tiago and Tit. The project is supported by the Municipality of Ljubljana.
