"At a time when any excuse will do for taking pictures and circulating them, it is important to offer young people an education for the eye. To get them to think of the world in images, to become conscious observers." (Raymond Depardon)
In recent years, the vision of the Jakopič Gallery has been evolving alongside our desire to contribute to a wider social understanding of photography as one of the most expressive media in fields of art, communication and creativity. This has resulted in focusing the gallery’s exhibition and education programmes on photography exclusively. The Jakopič Gallery has thus become a key venue for extensive exhibitions showcasing the best Slovenian and international photographers.
Because photography is not only about being in the right place at the right time. It is a way of seeing the world!
