The Marjan Ciglič Fonds (1957-1997)
Curator: Monika Močnik

Marjan Ciglič (Kranj, September 3, 1924, Ljubljana, July 8, 1998) studied photography at the studio of Master France Jug in Kranj. After World War II, he worked in various photography studios, and in 1957 he took a job at Dnevnik newspaper and remained loyal to him for more than 40 years, even when he was officially retired. During this time, he created an invaluable photographic opus, estimated at more than 300,000 original, mostly black and white, leica and 6 x 6 cm negatives. The photographs show different aspects, from important political events, to seemingly simple everyday moments, which is why they are a valuable document of showing the time and understanding of the lives of Slovenes. In 1980, he received the Tomšič  Award for his work. In 2001, in celebration of its 50th anniversary, Dnevnik donated the entire photographic fund to the Museum.
