The Marjan Miro Dobovšek Fonds (1986–2000)
Curator: Monika Močnik

Marjan Miro Dobovšek was born on 18 September 1953 in Ljubljana, where he completed the School for Photography. He still works for various newspapers, magazines, and other publications in Slovenia and abroad as a photographer, photojournalist, and photo editor. He was a photographer for the photography and advertising company Exportpojekt and for the Komunist and Slovenec newspapers. As an art photographer, Dobovšek was a member and the president of Fotogrupa Šolt Ljubljana for a time and is now a member of the Fotoklub Ljubljana. In 2014, Dobovšek gifted the National Museum of Contemporary History more than 4,000 colour and black-and-white negatives and transparencies and a few dozen photographs. The gifted material created before and soon after Slovenia gained its independence includes many colour films, even more black-and-white ones in the Leica format, and colour transparencies.
