In November 2005, the National Museum of Contemporary History bought 2,506 of Sandi Jesenovec’s (Puštal in Škofja Loka, 1.1.1926–3.3.2013, Brod-Vižmarje, Ljubljana) photographs from the period between 1944 and 1990: black-and-white photographs on paper, black-and-white and colour negatives on film in various formats and black-and-white negatives on glass plates. The fonds includes photographs from the period of World War II and beyond. From 1944 and 1945, when Jesenovec was a member of the geodetic section of the 9th Corps in the country’s Central and Littoral regions, there are preserved images of members of this section, Partisans, images of the hinterland, the liberation of Trieste and Gorizia, the supply of Allied aid and photographs of the Partisan hospitals Franja and Pavla, documenting their state after the Partisans abandoned them. In the period between 1946 and 1990 Jesenovec shot various interesting events and motifs related to Škofja Loka, Ljubljana and its surroundings, mostly toVižmarje-Brod and Tacen.
