Nace Bizilj is one of the most recognizable Slovenian photojournalists of the 20th Century. A taught photographer, he photographed Leonid Brežnjev at Cekin castle in Ljubljana when he was only eighteen years old and Josip Broz - Tito when he was twenty-four. His career began in 1962 at the renowned company Foto Slovenija and continued in 1968 at Delo newspaper. As a photojournalist and long-term editor of photography, he spent forty years visualising people, places and timeframes, from the elites to the average man, from politics to sport and culture, to key actions and moments from the margins of history. In 2003, he retired and thus bid farewell to the unrelenting tempo of daily journalist photography, but began anew in 2003. In 2010, he gifted the National Museum of Contemporary History his entire body of work, 300.000 black&white and colour negatives of photographs, and started work on his photographic heritage archive of national importance.
