EDJC 2023 > Jewish cemeteries
Branimir Ritonja has been one of the most prominent masters of contemporary Slovenian photography for many years. His prolific opus consists of works with a variety of motifs, which he supplemented a few years ago with a series of photographs of Jewish cemeteries in a vast area from Venice and Trieste through Rožna Dolina near Nova Gorica, Dolga vas near Lendava and Varaždin all the way to Bratislava, Brno, Mikulov, Prague and Krakow. With these photographs, the photographer devoted himself for the first time in his long artistic photography career to the documentary research of the culture of Jewish cemeteries. The exhibition was premiered in 2017 at the Maribor Synagogue Jewish Cultural Heritage Center, and since then it has been shown at several other locations. It will be on display in Negova Castle until the end of October 2023.
