This catalogue accompanied the first comprehensive overview of Božidar Jakac’s photography, shown in 2014 at the Museum Modern Art in Ljubljana. Known as a printmaker, the artist sought creative outlets in new media even as a student. Giving prominence to the newly discovered photographs of his from before World War II II, the exhibition followed the chronology of photographs taken by the artist at significant stages of his life: in Prague (1922-23), Novo mesto (c. 1923), Paris (1925), Tunisia (1925), America (1929-1931) and with the partisan forces (1943-1945). It covered the first two decades of Jakac’s involvement with photography, when his creative development in this medium was most intense and when he also matured as an artist and as a person. By including a number of his works in other media – drawings, prints, pastels and an oil painting – that represent the same experiential reality as the photographs, the exhibition showed that photography was indeed a new source of insight for the artist.
